There is something so meditative about being able to draw for the sake of drawing. To pull out a freshly sharpened pencil and draw until you feel like your day is complete and you’re ready for tomorrow. I felt like that last Friday when I wanted to draw for someone special. He spends every second of his free time hooked on the Eden channel, partly planning trips to these habitats in his mind and partly wishing he was the creature he was watching, haha. So I drew him a lion. My attempt at capturing the warmth of the great king of the jungle.
