And so it begins... (evil laughs)

The time has come for me to begin sharing my artwork in a much bigger way. This week I am officially releasing the Orange Gorilla from his cage and out into the world.

The first part of that release starts now with the roll out of my new Jimmy Danko Orange Gorilla website. Check it out.

The second part of the release is a part I hope you all to be part of. Almost exactly one year ago I moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina. During that year's time I've helped design and build not just our home, but a gallery for my art on the top floor of a 24 story building. We call it our Piece Of the Sky - Gallery 24B. This Friday I invite you all to join us as we open the doors to it for the first time.

In preparation for this occasion I've created the very first Dank T-Shirt - Necesito Más Mono (I Need More Monkey). It's available on my website right now (U$S15 - Mens & Womens: click here to purchase) or you can get one directly from me here at the gallery (50 pesos - Mens & Womens).

If a magical monkey t-shirt wasn't enough awesomeness for you, Friday I will also be unveiling a few brand new paintings. It's going to be an insane night. Not just a night to share my art and the Orange Gorilla, but a night for Annie and I to share what we've created here in this big crazy South American city. So please join us to throw one back and toast to a new chapter. Invite your friends. Invite your friends' friends. Spread the word to anyone you think might want to come check it out. We want to see our place bouncing and alive with friends and strangers alike.

Special Thanks:
I want to say thank you to all of you who have supported, guided and encouraged me in the pursuit of my artistic endeavors. What ever doors I walk through, I walk through with your energy in my thoughts and in my bones.

Peace and much ape love,
Jimmy Danko


*Please forward this on to anyone you think might be interested in checking out my artwork or coming to Opening Ni
