New illustration featured in PW article, The Elephant in the Room by Elizabeth Bluemle

It was great to create art for Elizabeth Bluemle's article,
The Elephant in the Room on PW Shelf Talker.

I worked digitally for this illustration. I drew each elephant separately,
then placed them into the circle composition. I used Elizabeth's writing and collaged it into each
elephant's body for texture, value, and as an element to support the subject-matter of her article.

Then I added color in Photoshop.

I really like this happy circle of elephants :)
How clever of you to think to use the type like this.
