Simba (2005) | Coloured pencil [11″ x 8.5″]

My passion for art is inspired by nature. Imagery from The Lion King lent an early sense of both creative and emotive freedom within visual media. I remember sketching Simba over and over standing atop Pride Rock as rays of sunlight opened the sky. I remember wanting to capture that moment, and I continue to enjoy taking time to draw.
