Synopsis

What if monkeys were astronauts, pirates, cowboys and queens? This zany ABC is complimented by Matthew Porter’s bold illustrations. His images that are painted on pine boards, sanded for texture to show the wood's grain, then finished with a veneer. Edgy yet lovable, these paintings include wide-eyed janitors and ventriloquists.
