Elephants appear in the news media in reports that fall into a few categories. Such as stories about: elephants under attack by poachers (or loss of ecosystem), rampaging elephants, scientific research involving elephants, elephants in captivity and so on.

In my Dad’s book these stories are arranged by category into their own chapters and each will have its own title page. This sketch is for the chapter dealing with stories about performing elephants.

  1. Must get this book when it comes out!! Jamie you have something great,…AGAIN! Thanks for posting these, really inspiring.

    • Thanks so much Brian! I’m glad that you liked it. I have to acknowledge my debt to Preston Blair’s dancing hippo from FANTASIA. Which is to say that I wasn’t thinking of it (consciously) when doing this drawing, but a few days later I definately noticed the unmistakable influence of that sequence which charmed me so much when I was little…

  2. YET another awesome drawing by the powerful Jamie Baker! I bet you bust these out in your sleep!

  3. Man, this stuff looks great, Jamie!!!

  4. Rhode- No, I don’t draw them IN my sleep, but sometimes I do them INSTEAD of sleep…

    Brian McDonald- Thanks, mister!
