not-tag, one more thing, the seven-o'clock show, twelve
Ivan hides all of his paintings inside of his toy gorilla. Julia notices how much paint and paper has been used and she's impressed by Ivan's commitment to his art.
Mack is selling the paintings for twice as much now ($40), so he brings Ivan more paint and tells him to get to work. Ivan paints for Mack during the day, but hides the late-night work he does for Ruby's project so that Mack doesn't know what he's really up to.
Bob tells Ivan he's just being a temperamental artist when Ivan expresses frustration at not being done with his plan yet.
Julia is working on her homework one afternoon, and Ivan overhears her asking her dad how to spell a word.
At first, Ivan thinks gorillas are lucky that they don't have to learn how to spell out words. But then he thinks again and a light bulb goes off in his brain: Words + Spelling + Art = Problem solved.
