I was inspired by these sweet little pachyderms! – Vintage from the 1960s – The Etsy seller (VintageByJade) has this write up – “Vintage purple salt glazed ceramic elephant mom and 2 chained babies. Made in Japan by Arnart Creations.”
Aren’t they adorable? Then, out of the blue … I stumbled on this …
So what was a muse to do? Start drawing of course!
Still playing with the hues of the colors. My ‘Edward Elephant” shall be sporting a blue/gray and I really want a rich deep tone for the balloons. Illustration and sketching are always the beginning steps. Since this project will become part of Poetic Pastries wall decor or art print series – the final rendering of my design is going to take place with cgi. Some of you may have experienced the journey of my baby shower invitations and the baby elephant I created for my stationery portfolio; recall Poetic Pastries released her into clipart free common use. Stay tuned to see the finalization of little Eddie – I have ‘high’ hopes!

Kawaii is a Japanese term referring to being or having the following characteristics; lovely or loveable, cute or adorable … it is a culture unto itself in Japan. The word Kawaii can refer to inanimate objects, people and animals that exude sensibilities such as being charming, vulnerable, innocent, playful, shy and childlike.
“The cuteness culture, or Kawaii aesthetic, has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, and mannerisms.” says wiki.

A diaper bag or nappy bag is a storage bag with many pocket-like spaces that is big enough to carry everything needed by someone taking care of a baby while taking a typical short outing.
These bags are not always designed expressly as a diaper bag, as any well-pocketed bag sized in between a child’s school backpack and adult pro-camping backpack can be used for the purpose. Some are now being made with rigid handles and wheels so that someone can cart one around, allowing that person to hold the baby more firmly, complete more tasks (like opening a door, paying a cashier, or using a phone), and reduce lower back pain. My Child magazine suggests a brightly colored diaper bag is harder to lose and can help combat the “baby blues.
Diaper bags are generally small enough to fit on or under a stroller or buggy. There have been fashion trends against large bags, as mothers learn to reduce the number of necessities carried.
In recent years, there has been an “explosion of styles, colors, designs, and functions.” Diaper bags have helped fashion designers make their mark. Since 2005, some high-end designers such as Kate Spade, Coach and RalphLauren have launched expensive diaper bag designs. According to Fortune in 2006, “To gain an edge, smart manufacturers are doing whatever it takes to capture the attention (and aesthetics) of today’s chic parents-to-be who are willing – sometimes even eager – to pay top dollar for products that seamlessly blend fashion and function. Designers can be protective of their diaper bag designs and trademarks. In 1977, diaper bags were the cause of a New York court case between Macy’s and Gucci. The court found that Macy’s had infringed on Gucci’s trademark by selling diaper bags with green and red bands and the wording “Gucchi Goo.”
Designs without bright colors or licensed characters can be high-fashion items associated with celebrity mothers. Companies also produce diaper bags with a more rugged look, as part of a growing sector of the baby-products market designed to appeal to men. (end Wiki)
