Pole Vaulting Elephant

A pole vaulting elephant? I guess anything is possible! In fact, this funny elephant picture is a great image for advertising and promoting large companies with unusual agility and skills. The photo has been crafted to work as a horizontal, square or vertical crop. This pole vaulting pachyderm is just strange enough to compel any viewer to read the accompanying headline and text, and there is ample room for copy space.


Creating Funny Elephant Pictures

In creating these funny elephant pictures I turn to a library of elephant images that I have photographed over several trips to Thailand. I start with a sketch of an idea, then find the right elephant parts and combine them using Photoshop. Most images take between a day and three days of computer work to finish. For this particular image I also utilized an image shot in a soccer stadium in Buenos Aires. The sky was photographed in Cancun, Mexico.


A Collection Of Humorous Elephant Pictures

This funny elephant image is one of a growing collection we have of elephants in humorous anthropomorphic situations. Many of them are engaged in athletic undertakings such as hang gliding, water skiing and surfing. This pole vaulting elephant photo represents challenge, possibility, and even opportunity. Elephants symbolize strength, power, nobility and even truth. Combine those metaphorical traits with the agility and athleticism of pole vaulting and we have a powerful metaphor that can be used for everything from demonstrating "standing out from the crowd" to opportunity and possibilities.
