Mali in the City, Melbourne Zoo
Posted 7 years ago and submitted by Elise Martinson | Share link:


I recently found out my two proposed designs for the Mali in the City event were both selected to be a part of the parade of 50 life-sized painted elephant sculptures! The finished elephants will be on display in various locations around Melbourne during August and September, then they will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go towards the zoo’s various conservation efforts.

I will be painting the elephants starting tomorrow and plan to do a time-lapse video of the process and hopefully also a live video feed, if technology resources permit.

Please see the news link for more detailed information.

We chose to use Elise as an artist for our labels because of the care and attention to detail that she puts into every piece of artwork. We found Elise easy to work with and prompt with changes and feed back regarding the artwork in progress.  We loved how she was able to bring the label ideas to life and add the finishing touches that make an ordinary label extraordinary. Our experience with her was very professional and we would defiantly recommend Elise to another business or individual.
