Elephants anyone?

As some of you may know, in some of my more far-fetched fantasies, I fancy myself as a bit of an artist. A few of you may have seen some of the works from my "early period" back in Melbourne (such as the masterful "minimalist penguin" aerated concrete sculpture in my parent's backyard and the "White Lines on a Blue Background" masterpiece that used to grace the living room of 6/217 Dandeong Rd). Well, after a few false starts, I think I've really found my niche as an artist - elephants. That's right, what started off as a playful experiment a few months ago has turned into a full-blown obsession. I'm pretty happy with my latest effort, which I did to fill up some of the wallspace in my bedroom. I just got a matt put on it today and here's a photo of it over the mantelpiece in my room. Whaddaya reckon?

I must admit I haven't seen your earlier works, but this is quite impressive. I'm not sure it rivals my collection of paper clip sculptures at work though. Before the works were 'decommissioned', I think I took paper clip sculpting to dizzying new heights in artistic expression, levels that are unlikely to be seen ever again. The collection captured the breadth of human emotional states in the office cubicle, ranging from 'Happiness' to 'Boredom' and 'Tedium'. Unfortunately my cubicle neighbour was unable to appreciate the fine subtleties of the works...
