Colored Pencils

I decided to treat my self to a box of prismacolors the other day. I only got a box of 48 but still pretty exciting. I haven't used colored pencils in like 10 years. I missed them!

I drew this Slow Loris** with them. Available in our Etsy Shop.

I also treated my self to this prismacolor pencil sharpner figuring it'd work great with my prismacolor pencils. Well it's the WORST pencil sharpener I have ever used. DO NOT BUY IT. It is designed to jam up and break all your pencil points. Piece of crap! The one that came with it is way better. Seriously the worst design ever!

**The slow loris is an adorable nocturnal primate that lives in South East Asia. Unfortuntely they suffer from being so cute - they are in high demand on the illegal pet trade market. For more information on the suffering Loris's face when they are made a part of the pet trade and how you can help them visit ProFauna Indonesia.

Elephant Inspiration

I've been looking for some inspiration on some elephant prints I've been working on.

Here are two of my favorite clips from Disney movies: "Heffalumps and Woozles" from The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and "Pink Elephants on Parade" from Dumbo.

I also found this great little clip of an animation done to a crazy old, but good Madonna song, Dear Jessie. The song has a line about "pink elephants and lemonade"
