IMAGINE


click to enlarge

After watching King Kong, SocMo could only IMAGINE what it would be like to be 25 feet tall. I IMAGINE you will understand SocMo's gesture better after you have seen the movie... which is incredible.

constanthing said...

Lovely sky. I can't wait to see the movie too ...

Queen Tut said...

Lovely illo, i relly like the clouds!

Twisselman said...

Timely and well-done. Very nice. Yes, the whole family wants to see the movie

Josh said...

Calming, tranquil colors.

Just discovered this blog of yours... SocMo is fun!

megan said...

Just HOW are you rigging this so that major cultural happenings coincide with SocMo's adventures each week?!? Another delightful entry, and the thought of a SockKong or a KingMo is just too wonderful.

steve said...

Ha ha! This is excellent. Can't wait to see the movie either!

Sam said...

nice illustration. i like the colors you used and how you've drawn the sky.

Doug said...

STEPHEN, QWEYSPIRAL, CONSTANTHING, QUEEN TUT, TWISSELMAN, JOSH, STEVE, and SAM... thanks for the nice words! Seems like the colors I smeared on the sky are a hit.

MEGAN... I have this strange feeling you are stalking SocMo...

carla said...

You mean Socmo isn't playing the lead role? Oh well... He sure looks perfect for the part:>

Doug said...

CARLA... they didn't offer him enough bananas... he's a high priced, highly trained professional actor you know...

Suzy said...

Cool cityscape! Neato bandito.

megan said...

StalkMo? (or StalkLess?)

Rachelle said...

Socmo looks sad and lonely ... and it looks like he's beefed up for his role as King Kong ... great illo - lots of emotion.

juliemc said...

Love the sentiment; and the colors. nicely done.

Mustashrik said...

yes your right, i understand it fully, and King Kong, what a movie, i dont think there was a dry eye by the end of the movie...such emotion and beauty. and your illo is wonderful for acknowledging it ;)

SocMo is looking a little thicker--auditioning for the squeal maybe?.

Heath said...

Ahhh! a Jones brother! Great work Doug. Love your style and taste....yes, you taste great....your drawings, that is.

philip said...

excellent. concept and style are awesome

Dennis West said...

Hey Jonesy, great work! Hopefully I'll be seeing King Kong this week. I'm really looking forward to it. I'll be thinking of Socmo!

mel said...

i haven't got a chance or time to watch it, it's hard to go see movie when you have a 3-year-old.. anyway, great work as always :)

Michele Melcher Illustration said...

Aw man, that is GREAT! We have a sock monkey named Rufus. He'd totally relate. (if he had gone to see King Kong with us)
Nice!

m.b said...

SocMo Rules! This is excellent as usual. LOVED the movie. I was completely entranced the whole time. SocMo shows as much emotion and personality as the big Kong did. :)

ValGalArt said...

this is so great! love the buildings, the clouds, colours and your socmo is perfect as King Kong!

Alina Chau said...

Very coool illo!

Doug said...

WOW! so many comments! Thanks for all the kind words! Have a great holiday season!

Well... I gotta get back to SocMo... I think I hear some planes coming...

Christine Lim Simpson said...

Great socmowork.

Heya Jonesy, I was just getting caught up on blog reading/looking, and found the Socmo work I missed while I was moving/offline. Wow, I missed a lot of really inspiring work you've done. The wistful Socmo dreaming atop the building is priceless, tuna flavored ice cream (how do you dream this stuff up?) and the Spongebob wannabe...all just wonderful!! Thanks for a few minutes of uninterrupted smiling :o)
