I’m not sure what’s up with me and elephants lately, maybe that “Elephant Poem” has me thinking about elephants. Or maybe my roommate, Ronnie’s love for them. Either way I’ve been thinking about elephants, and had the urge to draw one. This is an ink drawing on a gessoed sketchbook page. I like to slowly build up layers of color to get more depth, so it took me a couple of days to finish. It’s been really humid these past couple of weeks, so the ink took a lot longer to dry, especially on the gessoed paper.
