IF: Zoo #2-The Elephant Train


I did the sketch for this one last week, but then the fun train soon derailed and I started to make brooches instead of doing the illustration... What can I say, it's too much fun. Oh well, here it is, the original illustration intended for this week's topic.

Those are some cutie animals! It reminds me of the "old lady who swallowed the fly" since they look like they are inside the elephant.

It's nice to find a train that's extra roomy. It's all in the big caboose.

Well-done, and cuteness incarnate!

great design, great style and choice of colours - it's strange how it looks so modern and has this "old" feel at the same time.

hey flora,

I play in a band called Elephant Train and we love this picture a lot...would we be able to use it for something? I dunno what yet, but it embodies our music quite well.
