Elephants Can't Jump

This piece has a very sad humor. Unfortunately elephants are one of the few land mammals that cannot jump. In illustrating this fun fact I inked it first with a quill pen and then transparently painted over it in Photoshop. Also this piece has inspired an animation short about an elephant and a bunny rabbit, I think you can see the plot coming together there.

  1. I think I saw this at the latest art show over the weekend. I had not noticed what it was exactly, but now actually seeing it close up I understand the concept. I love the textured effect with the sketchy lines. You are very talented.
