The Artist That Created The “Good Boy” And “Black Cat” Comics Is Back With A Heartbreaking Comic About An Elephant

Published 4 years ago

Jenny Jinya is a German artist who you should know pretty well by now. She’s the same artist that created the “Good Boy” and “Black Cat” comics and this time she’s back with another heartbreaking comic – this time it’s about a tourist ride elephant.

Even though the artist’s comics are rather morbid, you have to agree that she manages to get the point across perfectly. This time she illustrated the sad life of tourist ride elephants, who are taken from their mothers while they are still young and “training crushed” into submission.

See the heartbreaking comic below, and don’t forget to check out more of Jenny’s comics here, here and here.

In an interview with Bored Panda, Jenny said she created the comic after coming across a photo showing a tied up baby elephant that was being tortured by “trainers”. The artist believes that fewer tourists would support these “attractions” if they knew how the animals are tortured to become submissive. After publishing the comic, Jenny received numerous messages from people who had ridden animals in the past an had no idea how they were trained.

The artist admits that conducting research for her comics is always depressing and she sometimes has tears running down her cheeks when she’s sketching out the storyboard.

Jenny thinks there are many reasons why people exploit animals with profit, poor education and crooked mentality being just a few of them. However, she believes that supporting shelters, educating people and signing petitions can go a long way.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
