These are two sketches I worked on a couple of months ago now. The project was to choose two photographs to work from and combine, while playing with scale, and I tried these two options. I have a thing for elephants, and I opted to go with the second one with the man-made installation, because the one with the airplane, though I find it interesting in terms of composition, seemed disturbing to me—as if the elephant is being hunted down or something. Of course, now that I think of it, it might have been funnier to make the elephants seem tiny, next to a mouse, say, but I can always try that some other time. I’ve yet to do the final rendering, for which I’ve stuck together a few sheets of Strathmore paper to make a great big surface. I’m posting it here today, which I hope will work as an incentive to get me working on this project again. Sorry about the crummy pics taken in bad lighting.
