Illustration Friday- Wrinkles

by Mark on April 27, 2008

It’s always fun to draw a wrinkled elephant, especially when he is the main mode of transportation for a group of escaping circus monkeys. This is an illustration from a couple of months ago and it is acrylic on watercolor paper (click on it to see it bigger).

Really good. Love all the action! (And the fact that the elephant looks like he’s struggling to decide whether to keep following the peanut or just head back :D)

Very nice illustration.
I love the look of the elephant, like he feels guilty.
