Illustration Friday: Brave

©Deborah Melmon

It was unclear who was more brave....the elephant who decided to take his first high dive into the pool, or the innocent bystanders who would to have to deal with the aftermath of an elephant possibly doing a belly flop on a cold, foggy morning.

I love it. The little people on the edge of the pool waiting are so cute.
