On the plane back from California last month, I met two very nice couples. One of the women sat next to me, and noticed that I was drawing this comic. She asked, "do you ever draw animals?" And I said, "it depends on the animal," and she replied, "elephants" and I answered, "yes, they used to be my favorite animal."
It turned out that her sister-in-law, the woman sitting in the seat in front of me, was looking for a rendering of five elephants holding trunks to tails in a circle for a tattoo she wanted. The couples didn't know any artists, apparently, so they were willing to offer the job to a strange girl on a plane. I showed the women some of my comics to prove to them that I can actually draw, although they didn't seem too worried, and they paid me in advance. I emailed these two images off last week.
