The Lion by joniwagnerart The Lion by joniwagnerart
A big THANK YOU to ~CagedFury86 cagedfury86.deviantart.com/ her photograph of "The Lion II." I hope I did it justice as I find the photo breathtaking. I named it "The Lion" (other than obvious reasons) for a favorite childhood book called "The Lion" by Joseph Kessel. I searched a number of years ago and it has been long out of print. I think I will check out ebay for an old copy! This is 11" x 14" on Vellum Bristol Board. Wood Derwent pencils H, HB, B and mechanical pencil 0.5 4B.

Good evening, and a happy birthday shout to you, Joni. I'm not so much into celebrities, but I love your portraiture anyway and especially that of the animals. You have so many great works here, it's difficult to decide on favorites. But I will pick this one in honor of Cecil, a beautiful king who was vilely assassinated. Here's wishing that another year brings you all that you need of inspiration, many moments of grace, creative production and all the fun you can handle.
Best regards,
Ed
