Meet ZORONA ZIVIC - The Ethereal Forest Elephants Illustrator

We love to support our artist community because they are very creative and hardworking people. We find that a lot of artists have a distinct style that communicates their inner feelings and dreams. Art is no doubt a skill worth celebrating, but it is also a wonderful form of communication.

We would like to introduce you to a very special artist who we met on Instagram and fell in love with her beautiful pieces. Her name is Zoki and she is the illustrator responsible for our "Ethereal Forest Mama and Baby Elephants". Please read more about Zoki below and don't forget to visit her website and Instagram to find more beautiful artwork. 

Who is Zorona "Zoki"?

"Hello, my name is Zorana, or Zoki for short. I come from Slovenia. I am a mother of two boys and a girl. There is also a husband around when he is not behind a computer. 😁.
Classical music, cooking and wandering in nature put me in the best mood. I am a simpleton all the way. VISIT MY WEBSITE."

The Birth of the Ethereal Forest Elephants Illustration

Zoki created the "Ethereal Forest Mama and Baby Elephants" illustration exclusively for Ele Footprints LLC. We shared our love for elephants with her and immediately we could tell how excited she was to begin the project. We mentioned that we were looking for an image that would capture our audience by displaying the love and compassion between a mama elephant and a baby elephant. As discussed in a previous blog post, we share six reasons elephant moms are the best mothers and we wanted an image that could showcase the mother-child emotions. Once we discussed what we were looking for, Zoki began working on the design and she surprised us with how quickly she came up with the sketches.

Zoki mentioned that as soon as we started the conversation, the wheels in her mind had already started spinning and the ideas were pouring in. We worked through the sketching process and agreed on a sketch then Zoki brought it to life with brilliant colors and vibrant flowers which we decided to name an ethereal forest because of how magical the picture is. Zoki did a wonderful job capturing the emotion between a mama and her baby as you can see the elephants trunks touching and their eyes closed with loving looks on their faces. 

Would we Recommend Zoki as an Illustrator? Absolutely!

We are so impressed with Zoki's illustration and how she managed to capture the loving emotion between mama and baby elephants. We are even more impressed with how down to earth she is. Zoki was very professional throughout the entire process. She was also very sweet and genuine. We loved working with Zoki and we plan on working with her again in the future on some wonderful elephant projects. Zoki is a wonderful communicator and she takes the time to listen to her clients. She is also a master of her craft and she provides intelligent suggestions as well as out-of-the-box ideas that inspire her clients. Zoki is a warm and caring person and her friends and family are blessed to have her. We would absolutely recommend Zoki to any of our friends and customers because she is honest and talented. We hope you will consider supporting the artist community and hiring a talented illustrator such as Zoki.
