Natural Growth  |  coloured-pencil  | self-commissioned 
The image features an elephant painted against a white backdrop. The elephant's body seamlessly merges with the form of a tree, featuring acacia branches growing from its back. The elephant exudes a sense of majesty and tranquility as it gazes into the distance. The illustration is depicted in neutral, earthy colors, capturing the central theme of aging with grace and acceptance.
I embarked on a creative journey to craft an image that would harmonise with a written piece on ageing in a psychology magazine. Drawing inspiration from the animal kingdom, I weaved surreal elements into the narrative, employing a palette of natural, earthy hues. The aim was to encourage introspection and contemplation, ushering in a serene and thought-provoking experience for the audience.
