Sunday Sketches...E is for Elephant, Elf and Eggs!

E is for Elephant    8"x10"  Sharpie/Prismacolor  copyright 2011
I'm making my way slowly but surely through the ABZ's with the latest addition Letter E!
This was a tough one, but thanks to alot of help from my Facebook Friends we were able to come up with some fun E words!
Letter E is for Elephant wearing bright red eye glasses
I do believe wears them when he attends classes.
oh, and what's that envelope in his hand?
 A letter to you...now that's sure grand!
Add a silly elf decked out in green
Such bright colors he's sure to be seen
And I couldn't forget a nest filled with eggs
Be careful elephant they're close to your legs.
Yes, E is definitely an Exciting letter
Filled with Fun...it doesn't get much better!
From Sketch to pops of color here's how Letter E...Evolved!
The Pencil Sketch...I'll bet you guessed!
 Next up adding the Sharpie Marker
The marker's done now for color fun...the closeups and the big rEveal!



Letter E is for Elephant   copyright 2011
14 letters down...12 more to go
Next up letter G...in the ABZ show!

Pop by and check out all of the creative fun...and join in too!

So cute! I'm glad you included an elephant. We have always called my youngest brother E so I think of him whenever I see a big letter E.
