NEW VERSION. I like to think this version is infinitely cuter than the old one. Albeit more gooey eyed. Be sure to check out the others. I'll soon have a zebra added to the set.

*Shameless plug* I'll shortly be selling these animal fairies in cute little boxed stationery sets over ebay. If you're interested let me know, and I'll drop you a link as soon as we get one set up.

NEWER UPDATE: This image now available on an infant creeper at Wings'n'Things

This is really cute but you know whats wierd i was working on a similar picture a couple days ago(though mine not a faery) i really like the back ground and the soft colors reminds me of a illustration for a childrens book(very good)(flutters away) such a cute picture..

1 Erin N. Conley replies: "Hehe I guess giraffe's are just too tempting a creature to not fantasy-ize them ;o) Thank you for the comment!"

There's more of these jungle fairies lurking around? By all means, let them step up on the stage! They're too cute to hide in shadows and depths of boxes and books! More, more, I plead thee!

The elephant's cuter, though...12

1 Erin N. Conley replies: "Hehe well it's just the two at the moment...but I'm going to be drawing more at my sister's request (she wants to make stationary out of them) so keep your eyes open for more ;o) In fact there's a lion-fairy in progress ;o) And yes the elephant is cuter, and I think no matter how many I draw, it's going to stay the cutest ;o) Thanks muchly! 19)"

Oh i LOVE Giraffes and i never see any pictures of them till now... its soooooooo cute... thats a nifty idea with the jungle fairies... good work!! 1

oh i was wondering... since i love giraffes and this is the CUTEST thing ever, i was thinking about getting a new tattoo sometime and if you would let me... can i use this picture for a new tattoo?? PLZ!

2 Erin N. Conley replies: "Thank you! 19) And well, ordinarily I might have said no about the tattoo...however, I'm thinking I may retire this picture in favor of a new version, so you're welcome to use it for a tattoo! I'm flattered you like it that much! Thanks! 19)"

Aww how sweet. Saw these on the new additions list and had to take a look. Checked out the others too but this is my favourite. I love the bright colours you've used, looks just like a kids book illustration. The blended colouring of the wings is very nifty too. Loveliness.

12 Erin N. Conley replies: "It's funny, the elephant used to be the best by far but I'm thinking I like the giraffe better now too ;o) Thanks very much, I'm glad you like it 19) Kids' book is exactly the style I was after!"

1 Erin N. Conley replies: "Thanks, glad you like it! I had a lot of trouble picking out the colors for this one, so I'm glad you like the end result 19)"

1 Erin N. Conley replies: "I tried several different versions of this while trying to get that heart-melting effect...Glad it worked! Thanks 19)"
