Two posts ago, I showed you some sketches of real Russians drawn from real life while really in Russia. While I didn’t personally see any elephants while visiting that fascinating country (maybe they were hibernating for the winter – I’m not a zoologist, so it’s probably true), my mind still wandered to them one cold Russian day, and they made an appearance in my sketchbook.

I wish I had a more expressive pencil on me at the time, but armed with just a .5mm mechanical pencil, a few elephants emerged from the cold recesses of my mind. I present them to you here with a little digital enhancement.


Elephants truly are funny looking creatures, but so amazing at the same time.
