What do you get when you combine an elephant with a mouse and a 19th century air balloon? The winner of January’s Top 9 at 99!

Designer pmo did an impressive job at conceptualizing the word “big” not only by using a hefty elephant, but by creating a clever juxtaposition between the elephant and the small size of the mouse (which by the way, is holding an umbrella to stop the elephant’s trunk water from hitting its tiny head — great detail!).

He ties everything together by creating an overall vintage atmosphere — both in style and by incorporating a 19th century air balloon. Despite elephants being my favorite animal, this design is clearly an award winning design.

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to pmo for being January’s Top 9 at 99!
