I decided to choose Ruby the Elephant, who used to live at the Phoenix Zoo and became famous because she painted canvas that sometimes sold for thousands of dollars. I have many fond memories of her from my childhood in Arizona. I remember my parents had a print of one of Ruby’s paintings in their office.
Here is a list of links about Ruby. I’ll make sense of everything and decide what I will do for the project later 😉
