The Elliphant by Simanion The Elliphant by Simanion
I did this illustration for local one-man electronic project, Elliphànt. Definitely worth keeping an eye on him. You can hear some tracks on his Facebook page:

The brief went something like: an elephant, but zany, and with galaxies! Haha, I was totally there. Always down for a surreal elephant. I classed it as digital because of the textures/colours, but it's essentially just an ink drawing. Putting one's own spin on the old "surreal elephant" would make for an excellent series I think. Hmmm...

Anyway, hope you like it!


Follow me on Facebook for a more compelling and rich Simanion experience: :lol:

This is like the most amazing elephant drawing everrr
The first thing that caught my eye was you use of different line sizes all used to give the elephant a really neat looking pattern :)

I like the Indian feel and the background you chose for this
It really brings out the best in your little elephant :)

I find the little elephant legs amusing and I havent seen something like that before

I also really like the way you've twirled the turks and the trunk so they work together to create a really pretty um twirly thing :D

Very cool!

And I like your border choice it's very post card looking :)
What do you think?
