The Blind Men and the Elephant

I was challenged by a colleague to do an illustration based on the poem ‘The Blind Men and the Elephant’ (John Godfrey Saxe, 1816-1887). Recently, a friend of mine had a commission to do a children’s picture book based on elephants and she had told me how it had taken three weeks to get a pleasing shape and look for her elephants! So I was delighted that I managed to complete this illustration in one day … just don’t ask me to do another elephant any time soon;)
