Antagonize - Jaime
After Mary was reminiscing on her training with Mr MiYoda among the many others, she was now ready to face her enemies.
Antagonizing Viktor may have not been wise as he can be very “Cruel” in his methods of torture. Stay tuned….

Jungle Turns – Chapter 9


Hello everyone, With this chapter, I want to take everyone into the thought process that Pia and I go through before each draw is submitted.  As our fellow Monkeys can imagine, making the storyline fit with the “Theme” that is picked for Sunday or Wednesday can be difficult at times.  I must confess that sometimes I have told Pia that “maybe we should skip this theme” but Pia always kicks my butt and we figure a way to make it work.

Pia and I message each other on Facebook days before the drawing is due.  Usually we look at both the “theme” that is due next AND the following “theme” so we can tie the storyline together.  For example the Chapter 8 theme “RPG”, we discussed how Agent W-D40 would tie a rope to an RPG so Mary could get out of the Quagmire.  I drew Mary becoming furious as she felt weak and found herself being the victim of these despicable men.  We tied in the following theme, “Illuminate” by showing Mary training in the “RPG” training or Role Playing Game simulators.

After submitting my draws for the current theme, I anxiously await the reveal of the following theme on @monkeysidebars so we can work on our storyline.

The ideas behind Pia’s draws were to show how Mary was seriously training.  She was in the Role Playing Game Simulator with bombs exploding behind her.

Meanwhile, Agent W-D40 is mesmerized by her beauty and becoming “Illuminated” with love.  However Mary stays focused with her training because clearing her name and revenge is on her mind.  Also we wanted to build the relationship slowly.

Again, more bombs exploding behind Mary in her new black spandex uniform!  For my first draw, I wanted more of an old comic style draw with “Booms” in the background like the old Batman comics.  The second draw shows Mary with a new hairdo and a new deadly attitude!

Mary has become a new force to contend with!  This draw was loosely referenced from the comic series (which has become one of my favorites), “Carbon Grey.”  This was my homage to artist, Hoang Nguyen and Khari Evans. Hope you enjoy and please follow on Instagram: @monkeysidebars and @jungleturns.
