I honestly don't recall the
specifics of the conversation which lead to this, since I am fairly
certain there was copious amounts of alcohol involved--but back at
FurPlanet's party at Texas Furry Fiesta in 2012, I struck up a
conversation with a non-furry fellow about how there were very few great
ape/chimp "fursonas" out there. This surprised him, and promptly
inspired him "become one."
So, Teiran of FurPlanet and I
conspired, and I finished him a chimp badge earlier this year, in time
for Texas Furry Fiesta 2013.
Anyhow, I had a lot of fun working on this badge, since I really like chimps, and never have an excuse to draw them!
“And some day there will be nothing left of everything that has twisted my life and grieved it and filled me so often with such anguish. Some day, with the last exhaustion, peace will come and the motherly earth will gather me back home. It won't be the end of things, only a way of being born again, a bathing and a slumbering where the old and the withered sink down, where the young and new begin to breathe. Then, with other thoughts, I will walk along streets like these, and listen to streams, and overhear what the sky says in the evening, over and over and over.” ~Hermann Hesse
