Rondy The Elephant Is Back! This Time On Redbubble Products

Do you remember my little Rondy the Elephant? He is a fun elephant who loves all sorts of adventures. I made a series of Rondy paintings back in 2011 for my Etsy shop while living in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, I had to close it due to our big move to California last year. Rondy has been feeling quite lonely in the folders on my computer and really wanted to get out and have adventures once again ;) So this time the whole series of Rondy the Elephant illustrations will be available in my Redbubble shop.

Here are a couple of things Rondy chose to appear on:

Greeting cards and postcards

Prints and posters

Framed prints
