“My breakthrough moment was when I realized that it is easier for me to speak through images than it is through words.”

Ever since she drew a picture of a fox playing with a rabbit in the second grade, Zlatka Paneva has never looked back. “The teacher hung it on the board for a week," she explains. "Every day when I came to class, I felt, this is what I want to do. My breakthrough moment was when I realized that it is easier for me to speak through images than it is through words.” When she creates her prints, the fine arts-trained illustrator says she starts with an image, phrase, or emotion, then uses her imagination to “infuse it with elegance and a sense of humor.” And if she ever needs more of a nudge, she ventures into the California desert. “I love everything about it,” she says. “I love the simplicity of the landscape. The colors and lines inspire me endlessly and often translate into my artwork.”

Love the print... Such detail and beauty. A word of caution if you buy it unframed though, the 16x20 mat that it comes on (with adhesive so that it is difficult to remove the print without damaging) does not fit into a standard frame because it is too thick. Looks like we'll be consulting with a custom framer after all. :(

I haven't gotten a usable item yet.
The first one was damaged - a large crease running down the center of the print - was under the matting, so it was shipped damaged.
The replacement (which came much faster than the original) also had a large crease along the bottom third of the print - this time including the matting.
The print looks nice, but they are unable to send me one that is undamaged - continually blaming the artist, as this is apparently fulfilled by the artist, not by uncommongoods.
So, one day, we hope to have what we purchased, but uncommongoods is 0 for 2 so far. It's actually pretty sad that after the first disaster, they didn't take more care in sending the replacement. I don't have high hopes for the third try.

Comments about UncommonGoods The Happy Elephant:

The print is pretty. I actually have another print from this artist which is the baby elephant. It is a bit more vibrant than Happy Elephant. But they will look cute together in my den. I wish it was a little bigger because it is so pretty.

            This print works perfectly in my bathroom to add color and whimsy to a room with black and white tiles. The colors are so vibrant and the details in both the elephant and the flowers are even more beautiful and intricate in person. I highly recommend this piece of artwork!!

              my roommate moved out recently and I remember her always talking about this particular print. I gave it to her for her new apartment to hang as a symbol of our friendship. she absolutely loved it and was so happy that I remembered how much she liked this print. it is such an easy, yet thoughtful gift!

              Bought as a gift for a friend who loves elephants and thought it would be great to already have it framed. Once she received it she said she liked the picture but could do without the frame.
