24 Elephants or Bears - Elephant or Bear 17

 First, an apology. It has been brought to my attention that I have been irritatingly coy about the identity of my patron for this series of pieces, and the precise nature of my relationship with him. This is of course information you have every right to know, for reasons too obvious to explain; and which you could not possibly in a million years have guessed. No-one’s that clever-clever. 

So let me now be perfectly straightforward with you: my patron is His Serene Grace Archduke Gustavus Von und zu Schellenhuber, Prince-Elector of Westphalia. I recently had the honour to be appointed his Court Artist (Ursine and Elephantine works only). 

Here is the latest piece I have completed for His Grace. I believe he intends it as a fresco for his refectory.

ALT TEXT: A felt-tip drawing of an elephant, with a sign on his side reading ‘Cat Bus’, carrying several cats, represented by stickers. (His Serene Grace the Archduke loved this one. He laughed his gold epaulettes off, and then spent some time repeatedly counting the kittens held in the elephant’s trunk- although not, it must be said, with remarkable accuracy.)

Thank you for the clarification. Please convey my compliments to His Serene Grace.

Are you sure the patron was not Princess Theresa of Liechtenstein. "to fly the King and I? Why, that would be the Sound of Music to our ears. Why, not since we flew Madame Butterfly to the South Pacific...."

Thank you for the clarification. I trust his Serene Grace would not mind me offering congratulations on embarking on such an adventure with such a patron!

"my patron is His Serene Grace Archduke Gustavus Von und zu Schellenhuber, Prince-Elector of Westphalia."

My father is from Westphalia (left in April 1939 for the obvious reason).

Please convey my warmest greetings to His Serene Grace the Archduke, and best wishes for a happy Christmas and New Year.

Perfect. I very much enjoyed the cat ladder, and the 'Whoops, sorry, I've misjudged my stopping distance again, haven't I?' cat bus stop sign. Not sure I'd recommend sitting at the back of this particular bus, though... it's quite close to the exhaust.

Really enjoying these. Thanks.

A cool Yule to one and all.

Hm. His Serene Grace, indeed. I refer interested parties to "24 Things - Thing 2", from Friday 3rd December 2021. I say no more.

I must say, your post has me pondering one of life's quirky questions – elephants or bears? Your fun and light-hearted take on this unusual comparison brought a smile to my face. It's fascinating how you've delved into the unique traits of both these majestic creatures and drawn parallels that I've never thought of before.

By the way, your seamless inclusion of IT Dissertation help. as a keyword shows how well you know your way around engaging content. Kudos for that! Your writing style is engaging, and your creative approach to this topic has me looking at elephants.
