Eugene the Elephant

Eugene is my elephant.  He has been with me since before college which says a lot because college was 12 years ago.  It’s possible that he came in a happy meal.  The print above was his first appearance in my work.  It was an assignment for my printmaking class at Drew and I think I was having a very hard time deciding what to make images of in that class.  That is the foundation of my relationship with this stuffed elephant.  I draw him when I have no idea about what to draw…and squares sometimes.

Now Eugene has his own shelf in my studio.  He sits right behind where I paint my pictures, quietly.  He makes appearances on my instagram account on occasion too.
