What should Item draw next? 2: A monkey in a castle with a red flag

Congratulations, dermfitz, Item chose your subject today. We had some debate over whether "a monkey. In a castle. With a red flag" meant the monkey had to be holding the flag, or whether the flag could be on the castle. Actually, if I'm completely truthful, we also had a debate over whether the flag had to be red, but let's gloss over that.

I think we are yet to see Item's best work. She never does that well when she's under any kind of pressure, even when it's unstated. Her boldest graphic works (if you'll allow me to get a bit soccer mum about the whole thing) tend to take us all by surprise, not least her. Well, I don't think she discerns what is going to make adults coo and what isn't: she's just pleased with everything, which is, of course, just the way it should be.

Still, nice yellow castle, and an interesting deviation from the shape we'd usually expect a castle to be.

Hello, by the way, to anyone who is here by route of the Argus blog.
