Developmental Commentary

Cobras are the world’s largest venomous snakes. Although the cobra has enough venomous power in one bite to kill an adult elephant, it generally prefers to avoid human confrontation. After learning this I decided to play down the villainous side of the cobra and focus on its size and hypnotic stereotypes. With its interlocking loops, this type has a hypnotic swirl to it and a sort of thickens towards its mid section. I built this type so that it would include many of the cobra’s physical features, but presented in a less literal way to allow the readers to interpret it their own way. Some may see a tongue, others a hood with eyes.
