This was a painting I did when I completed a summer program at Memphis College of Art during the summer of 2010. "Edward" was done in acrylic paint and sharpie pen for the lettering, and it was just an experiment that I did to study the structure of an elephant. I decided to paint him yellow because I felt that he needed a strong and bright color to grasp people's attention and captivate them with the message. The background was just a wash of acrylic blue paint mixed with white, so that the coolness of the tones would calm down the bright outspoken yellow color.
