text color pencil drawing "Pink Monkeys" by artist Joe Hardesty
Pink Monkeys
color pencil on paper
19.75" x 28.5"

Inspired by the most unforgettable scene in the Wizard of Oz, this drawing captures the exact moment when the Wicked Witch of the West’s flying monkeys are revealed to be masturbating each other in an orgiastic frenzy that defies description. Each pasty grey creature seems simultaneously terrified and lost, gnash-toothed in ecstasy.
