The Completion of a Drawing

I set out to complete a drawing of a baby elephant quite a while ago. I am pleased to say that I have completed the piece ๐Ÿ™‚ It has been a drawing with it’s own journey, like many pieces have. When I set out to draw this piece, it was to be the first addition to the We Are Not Trophies series. This piece lead me down a great path, even though it wasn’t completed until recently.

I knew my series would have serious meaning, it’s a series topic. Wildlife preservation is extremely close to my heart. My soul cracks when I see the abuse animals go through and the threat of extinction to many is heartbreaking. It’s a reality I want to change. That is why I set out on the series. It’s amazing what you can do with passion, drive and belief. This is not something that will be fixed in a day or even a few years, but it is something that I can help with. It is something the Can be fixed.

People have already been asking me more questions on why I am an animal lover. Why care? Why start with the elephant? Would the disappearance of these creatures really affect us? Each time those questions are answered, I see a light bulb go off atop of their heads. In turn, they want to make a difference. Even if it donating some money to the WWF and adopting a pet.

It is our responsibility to preserve this Earth. We have done a lot of damage over time and things can be repaired, slowly but things can and will change.ย With the simple belief that I have in saving animals (of all types) and this environment we all share, I am letting that fuel my creation. It doesn’t matter if it is a painting or drawing, the message is there.

Make a difference. You can always make a difference. Even if it is recycling your plastic bottles, it’s a step in the right direction.

If you ever have any questions on my work or just want to drop by to say hi, feel free to email me ๐Ÿ™‚
