Illustration Friday "angels and devils"

Here's my second contribution this week to make up for a period of silence on my part. I'm gonna put it down to being completely floored by the pollen and spring. The elephants came out of a bit of a word-association jump. When pondering the theme for this week I thought "aha, deviled eggs" (food thingy where you take a boiled egg, cut it in half, remove the yolks and mash 'em up with some spices and other yummy stuff, there's lots of variations on this recipie) , and then I thought "deviled elephant". So this is actually a picture of "devil-ed" and "angel-ed" elephants. Food for thought eh? I think it would make nice wrapping paper...

Hey, this is really cool! I dig the good and evil elephants. It would make a cool wallpaper. Thanks for sharing!

You know what, this reminds me of that nightmare sequence from Walt Disneys 'Dumbo' movie. The pink elephants scene that scared all the kids who watched it. I luved that part of the movie !

Great idea !

This is fabulous! The elephants look so gleeful (though I think the devil-ed elephants are probably having more fun!) and I love the saffron background color too. WONDERFUL stuff!!!!
