Elephant Mom

this picture i drew looked kind of eerie to me. something about the woman's right arm reminded me of John Merrick and brought back childhood fears of deformities and specifically those portrayed in the David Lynch film "The Elephant Man," which I saw with my parents when I was a little boy.

I have since come to love that film as one of my favorites and in the process have somewhat reconciled my former fears of deformed peoples. Though I must admit that my first impression of this woman (not knowing her personality or the quality of her soul) invokes fear and probably misunderstanding as to her her true nature.
