I made this as a secret Santa gift recently for my friend Janette. Normally it's kind of up in the air when it comes to deciding what to draw for someone (when they haven't commissioned you), but this was easy. I knew she loved elephants, so I decided to draw some pink elephants from the movie Dumbo. I'm sure you remember that scene if you've seen the film. I don't know how anyone could NOT remember it. It's so wonderfully weird. I went on youtube and watched the sequence, pausing the clip to draw the elephants. Then I combined a bunch of them into this jumbled composition.
It's drawn in India ink with watercolor 7" x 9"
