Tanzanian Lion

Tanzanian lion of the Serengeti.

My first lion drawing was for a friend who was a Henderson High School (Texas) graduate. Of course the mascot is a lion. Later I used that same piece of art for a gigposter and the rest is history. It ended up in art books, in a calendar (my wife is a Leo so it was extra fun to see it represent July). It even ended up on the cover of a high school annual in Tucson, Arizona (They were cool and sent me a copy). In the end it (the artwork) was lifted online many times. I guess that when you know it is good. Emulation is the biggest flattery. I’m not even mad. All this to say that lion grew up and moved out of my house. I thought it was time to make a new lion. I present the Tanzanian Lion. Created in the summer of 2019, it is now ready to take its own journey.
