Why not treat yourself to this 325ml premium white ceramic mug, with the graceful 'Tread Softly' design.

 

I could sit drawing elephants all day long. I have this theory that the wrinkles on an elephants skin each tell part of the story of that particular elephant’s life. For each wrinkle; a story. And so when drawing elephants, I can get lost for hours in the detail. Capturing each wrinkle. Desperate not to miss any part of the story.

 

It's true that there is something magical which draws us towards these beasts. There is no question that is has something to do with their size, but also (and prehaps more so) it has to do with their gentle, quiet grace. They roll and pad along the red dirt tracks of Africa, capable - with their size and power - of untold destruction should rage and fury descend. And yet, they naturally hold that power and strength back. They are such quiet, calm and seemingly loving creatures operating within the structure of their herds. I wanted to capture some of that gentle grace in this piece.

 

You can also buy this mug as part of a Gift Set along with a coaster, which you'll find on the shop's Gift Set page.
