Giraffe Art

*****
An 'uneckspected' theme appeared in Ingrid Sylvestre's work after she was told she had 'more neck than a giraffe'! She began creating humorous cartoons of giraffes and developed the amusing yet aspirational theme of 'Stick your neck out for your dreams'. Many of her early giraffe artworks featured scenes from Durham, where everything was 'giraffified', the buildings, landmarks and of course the residents! From these early pictures and their long-necked inhabitants giraffe family The Neckmanns emerged.

*****
Ingrid printed many of her original giraffe paintings as greeting cards, including the 'Lots of Neck' and 'Giraffitude!' ranges, which became highly popular. Several of the best loved cards feature scenes of Durham as pictured above. You can see the cards, which are all available for sale, at her sites Ingrid Sylvestre Giraffe Greeting Cards and Ingrid Sylvestre Greeting Cards.

*****
As Ingrid's giraffe theme grew in popularity she began to write stories featuring her giraffe family The Neckmanns and was soon booked for story telling sessions in a variety of venues including schools. She had large life-size figures of the giraffe characters produced which accompany her on her storytelling and speaking engagements!

Necky Becky's dad, giraffe Raph G. Neckmann has his own blog, Raph's Ramblings, in which he relates the adventures of the family and friends from their home, Necky Knoll House. Living on Giraffe World, a totally 'giraffified' planet in Camelopardalis Constellation light years away from our planet Earth is no problem for Raph, who communicates via the Interneck.
