This might work for "nightmare" as well as homage! Love the colors and facial expressions.

That's hilarious. Great job on her face -- her expression is priceless.

I think your writing is just as good as your drawings. I especially like the drawings of children, but this gorilla is a hoot!

That is a terrible situation all around; for the viewer and the gorilla. Interesting idea for "homage." The expression on the gorilla is priceless.
