Monstrous Engravings: Elephant Man.

elephant head.jpg

I drew this from an engraving print I have been seeing since I was a kid; I saw it first in a book I checked out from the library about The Elephant Man. Strangely, I have been able to find no information about it–who the artist was or when it was created.
Similar artwork was featured on posters advertising The Elephant Man when he was exhibited in 19th century London.

On a lighter note, being a fan of The Young Ones TV show from the 80’s, this engraving print always reminds me of Elephant Head when I first glance at it. 😀
