caterphant - elepillar


Back from my hols and to get in the swing of things here's a quick bit of whimsy... a 'return' of my good friend Phil's 'twisted elephant drawing tennis match'. This little ... just thought of another name ... caterpachyderm ... loves leaves and peanuts and, after a lengthy metamorphosis turns into the rare, flightless Dumbo moth.

Matt-

Rich & direct.
I've got to say, I see a lot of style development in your work over the past 10-12 months. Very interesting and deliberate choices.

I can't wait to see what you'll come up with next.

my first book (it*s really just an idea in my head so far) is about a girl who hates to have her hair cut...
it will be silly and cute and whimsical and most importantly, it will make me millions!!! bwa-hahahaha!!!
just kidding.
...most importantly, it will have a nice life lesson about the importance of good hygiene. :)
