The Elephants’ Graveyard

This is one of the first colour pieces for the Elephant book that I did several years ago. It was in the mock-up that was shown to the publisher and that of course led to the book being picked up by a “proper” publisher rather than being self-published, as I had originally intended.

I had to extend it to fit the new book design dimensions, because the book designer asked me to make this into a double-page spread (I have cropped off most of the facing page here however, because without the text it looks empty otherwise).

Even after having done about 50 more elephant illustrations since I finished this one, it is still one of my favourite pictures in the book.
