   Wishing all my fellow artistic revolutionaries joyous prosperity in 2016, yang fire monkey year with more monkey art than you can shake a banana at. I tried to compile an eclectic assortment of monkeys, apes, macaques, baboons, etc in a variety of styles & techniques. Sun Wukong & Hanuman are, of course associated with monkey years & feature prominently here. I've also included excerpts of general predictions for the year from Happy Wishing Well & Suzanne White.

   The lunar Year of the Yang Red Fire Monkey runs from Monday Feb 08 2016 to Friday Jan 27 2017. This is a year of adventure, discovery, questions & answers, when luck can strike at bizarre times & fortunes can turn in the blink of an eye. Risk, strategy, learning, change & progress feature prominently in a Monkey Year.
