Love can be experienced by anyone, and that point is illustrated wonderfully in these Jillian Ludwig drawings. Depicting elephant couples frolicking about as though they’re humans, the sentimental series warms your heart while also offering viewers a small dose of humor. You’d think that the weight of an elephant is enough to crush another elephant’s spine if it were to lay on top of its partner’s back, but Ludwig’s picture has the mammal sitting on its mate with no problems.

Jillian Ludwig rendered these images using graphite on paper. She finds inventive ways to work in heart shapes into most drawings, whether it’s with flower petals running along the elephants’ back or by contorting the animal’s bodies until they form the universal symbol for romance.
