All good things come to an end

Hi my beautiful friends.

I find myself coming to the sad realisation that Motivating Giraffe has reached its completion. Hundreds of giraffes later, I feel like I’ve said the things I’ve needed to say and I’ve had an incredible time doing it.

I think you guys have taught me far more than I’ve taught you. The people that have been following on Reddit and the blog, my family and my friends, have overwhelmed with their support through all of this. Because of you, I feel like I really can pursue art and illustration in the future, maybe children’s books, maybe a million other things. I never (never, ever) thought this would be something I would do, and maybe it’s a silly dream…but as a certain giraffe would say, *follow your dreams*.

Depending on interest, I might put together a coffee table type book with a collection of the most popular giraffes. I’d actually love to do something like this and uni is almost over for the semester, so watch this space for updates.

If you’d like to get in contact with me for whatever reason, please feel free to email me at I’ve also set up a separate blog at where I definitely intend on putting up more silly drawings – not limited to giraffes, although I’m sure a certain long-necked mammal and his pig friend will occasionally make appearances.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for everything. Take care of yourselves, take care of each other.

This is the end of something, but it’s the start of something else. And how exciting that is.
