A psychedelic drawing I did for fun in my sketchbook. Started out with a random drawing of an elephant head and ended up turning into a full image as I got carried away. I used different elements found in my previous sketchbook pages. For example the rug the elephant man is sitting on is from the patterend background of the guitar performer drawing and the village from a full page doodle. I also drew inspiration from art of different regions and time periods. The village is in the fluorescent color palette that youd find in 60's counterculture rock and festival posters. The background is a 17th century french baroque style pattern. The clouds are inspired by the clouds found in Tibetian buddhist art.
