My friend Anna is having a baby boy, (Henry). She asked a bunch of her friends to draw an elephant for the nusery and here's what I drew.

i love your line work, it's beautiful and has a wicked flow. the expression is great and the coloring is simple and nice, cool character, i love how you extended the top of his head like that and the small hat is a great contrast to his rediclously large head.. lol...

Pip-pip, cheerio! I love your elephant...and especially his tiny hat! Don't know which regiment he's from, but he looks so very British. Beautiful design, as always. It's such a treat to see your work. I, too, will be adding an elephant to baby Henry's collection. Looks like mine will be in exceptionally good company. :)
