I love elephants because they remind humans the true meanings of "wild" and "savage" and who is truly wild and who is truly savage.
P.S. I wrote a very long poem called "Wild And Savage" last week to accompany this illustration which I originally wanted to post last Sunday for IF's "Wild" theme. After the incident this week, I decided not to post it. Even though the poem contained things that I knew happened in the past, some lines appear to portend what happened in Boston and it frightened me. Perhaps it may be that history really repeats itself.

Looks pretty cool when framed, ey? I put up prints for sale through Society6. Prints are available unframed or framed. Please do not buy any of my work just to please me because I do these drawings for personal pleasure. I normally give the originals to people I love. The print profits are very minimal PLUS I pledged to donate profits I get from my wildlife prints to the many animal conservation organizations I follow and support. So thank you for helping me save from extinction, the animals I love.
