    At least he's using film

    I'm not sure how good this is for photography, but at least it's all on film.

    I love Komar and Melamid. If you ever get a chance to hear a talk by them, don't miss it! Brilliant and hilarious.

    This is a massive step forward for chimp photography.

    Finally they are getting the acclaim they deserve and perhaps once and for all they can escape the stereotype of just flinging poop as their main artistic outlet.

    I think we'll see a lot of new art programs stepping up at zoos as they be trying to cash in on this miraculous art discovery.

    I'm thinking a lot of canvas and brushes will be heading their way too.

    In fact one day soon you'll hear " humaning" as the term describing looking at the back of a camera.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Cats make better artists, and they did it first:

    Cats aren't painting - they do it because they think they are making a mess of your walls.

    So then... they really are artists after all??

    I only care about animals, lizards, or other creatures that use film.
