Something subconscious stirs in me looking at this illo. I recall being a small child and having a feeling something intangable and HUGE was near. Maybe all small children feel much is large around them.
A wonderful piece! Great drawing.

Hooray! You're back! And fabulously larger than life! I would very much like to control a massive pachyderm. Not every day, but most.
