When I started to draw this very soulful looking chimpanzee I had not realised that they were on the endangered list. I just loved his face. So I was genuinely shocked to find out their status. With that in mind I just had to submit this piece so I could bring awareness to others, like myself, who didn't realise that our closest cousin is indeed in trouble.
