Dion says: “This elephant was a fantastic challenge especially working in every wrinkle on his trunk. The medium I prefer using is an extemely sharp charcoal pencil, which gets the effect of the surealism desired. I do not smudge, the whole picture is made up of seperate strokes, line by line. I love to create light among the shadows.”

A beautiful dominant animal. An African Elephant. I think our elephants are gorgeous, with their huge ears and massive tusks. One of Dion’s trademarks is playing with circles place playfully here and there.

Beauty in the shadows. Dion draws every single line. He does not shade or “color in”. Spotted Shadow is full of mystery, regal and one very proud cat.
