    I'm going to advocate using this elephant as the WLIB mascot. Just put him on various pages, swinging his trunk back and forth with that bored look on his face.

    It'll be awesome.

    its gesture and "lack of toenails" make me feel like its legs were sharply cut and removed, haha. Nice one, but why it took you 7 hours?

    It took 7 hours because of:

    1. Brief from client
    2. A bunch of Sketches
    3. Draw elephant in vector
    4. Animate trunk - basically means drawing the trunk about 30 times.
    5. Feedback and Changes
    6. Prepare files so the After Effects guys in back in Norway can use it.

    I've actually overseen toenails. I'll add that tomorrow, haha.

    @Kent - can cut and paste right? and not drawing it like 30 times 30 times right?

    Ong Vince: No cut and paste, the trunk is drawn frame by frame - like in old disney movies :-)

    Stella: Since the elephant is "the big elephant in the room" (like the known expression) reprenting the environmental problem - it has to have a grumpy "what do you want?" attitude. This is what the client ordered.
