I made this illustration during a random period of fuzzy, warm thoughts, mixed with a touch of endless- possibilities- sky -is- the-limit attitude. I have no idea where they came from, but now that you know what they are maybe you understand my inspiration for this graphic. Suddenly my elephant just had to fly! I didn’t want a Dumbo-esque image but rather something that still had the shoe, and where the “pilot” was not in control of the flight. I guess that’s why I ended up with a balloon, they float in a romantic way wherever the winds take them. They also represent vulnerability, you can never know when they will pop. But you take the chance just to experience the view from way up high. I guess that is what love promises too.
So here’s to hoping that balloon never bursts! And that everyone gets a chance to feel this way.
