Monkeys and giraffes are like Olsen’s circus animals, they are both interesting creatures. He finds them very entertaining, the long necks and the gangly legs of the giraffe and the way they walk. The way a monkey swings in a tree with their long arms, they all have a sense of fun. He says, "I’m captivated by their careful awkwardness, they are such a spirited creature and I adore them."
Olsen spent much time in Kenya where he spent many days sketching these animals. Notes in his diary reveal he was particularly interested in the giraffe because of their extraordinary shape and their inquisitive behaviour.
"They have this interesting kind of human thing going on, they are so interesting to paint and draw."
