There’s an awful lot I like about it.
First there’s the rather jaunty fact that there’s no real reason to have a baboon there at all.
It’s merely telling you that you can have endless topups on your hot beverages (which is sadly not a common thing in the UK).
So, first there is a baboon. Nice.
Next bottomless is pictured with a bottom. Equally nice.
And such a nice bum too – the illustration is beautifully done, which is always good.
But I particularly like the fact it’s been so very carefully water coloured. Technically that’s a really nice job.
I’ve been drawing again recently, and using a fair bit of water colour, so I can say for certain that if you’re going to paint the hindquarters and visible genitals of a baboon… then this is tip top job.
And how rarely you can say that in the modern world!
Carry on monkey illustrator, carry on.
This is part of Signage Sunday – if you fancy seeing some less baboon related images, have a look at these other signs from the series:

Found an ace sign? care to share – go on, slide it into the comments or send it to me in an email. I’d love to feature more signs from readers here…
