Art has always been a matter of "beauty is in the eye of the ..." But let's face it, car antennas are not indigenous to giraffes, and you really don't want to see what is over Dracula Dave's right, your left, shoulder. In fact, you don't see the mess behind Dave, because the photo has been enhanced (or fudged as the case may be). Actually, the photo originated from video using Play Inc's Snappy. It has been, hmm, touched up a bit in Adobe Photoshop to remove some background. On its way here to the web, the image had to  overcome file format considerations. FrontPage easily handled the importing of the .tga format and converted it into an interlaced .gif (pronounced "jif") file. File size and color depth were other considerations involved. The web journey was time consuming, but not difficult, and one has to use many graphic tools.
