A political Todd Warner Elephant and Donkey.  The faces are fun!

Todd Warner has been creating his imaginary world of sophisticated whimsy for over 40 years. “There’s an innate sense of humor in my work, but I’m not going for the belly laugh. I love to make people smile. I can’t fight being humorous”.  He says his sculptures are “whimsical and sensitive; they have their own spirit.”

“ABA on the national/international and chapter levels would resonate with everyone.  Since my first meeting years ago I have been greatly blessed in so many ways, but most importantly by the wonderful people  whom I have met and the special friendships that I treasure.”
