- The Esthetic of Elephants
created by Ian O'Neill
- The concept behind this project was to elaborate on one form to create a series of poses and distinct graphic elements working with just one subject. I choose the elephant because of my interest in this animal. Elephant hide is very tough, wrinkled, and completely desaturated. With this project I wanted to visually depict the elegance that these animals have by simplifying the form and overlaying lines and breaks in this figure to create a feeling of elegance.
