Edit, April 10: On reflection, decided that my memories of my dog Mickey belong in another (maybe longer) post.

It’s been a while since the last time I tackled a drawing of this majestic creature. I think elephants translate well into pen and ink drawings as far as subject matter goes. I particularly like the challenge of trying to get that realistic look with all the wrinkles and folds presented in this beautiful creature’s skin. But even at the size of a baseball card, an unimaginable amount of dots have already gone into this. It has taken 12 hours spread over three days just to fill in the background. Still though, I always enjoy the outcome of a good pen and ink piece of elephants. Hoping this turns out the way I imagine it.

For the 2018 competition, NAVS is looking for fresh perspectives to illustrate their mission of ending the exploitation of animals used in science, as well as messages of hope and compassion throughout the year. Art for Animals provides an opportunity to get creative and give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves! Your artwork could appear in print and online messages from NAVS for Labor Day, the Fourth of July, World Week for Animals in Laboratories, or on greeting cards and in social media throughout the holiday season.
Cash prizes will be given to First, Second and Third Place winners, one Youth, and one Best in Show winner.
