King of the Jungle

FINALLY FINISHED!!!! I have been illustrating a book for "The Lion Man - Big Cat Trust", in aid of raising money to help the protection of Big Cats.
The final image is a portrait of a lion named "Sampson". Sadly he has died now, so this is a little tribute to him to add to the collection of others. 
Sampson belonged to a pride of lions called the "Wild Pride". You may notice the slightly wonkey eyes and battle scars... if this old boy could talk, I'm sure he would have hundreds of stories to tell.

If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the book or individual prints of my illustrations, which are all in aid of the charity, please feel free to contact me.

This is the book cover. If you are interested in the book or would like to order a copy, (with all proceeds going to the Big Cat Trust), please, just drop me an email and i'll get it sorted out for you.
Thanks again for every one's support.
All the best, as always,
Tori Cat.x

I have been following your work, it is all pretty amazing and beautiful. I am familiar with the Wild Pride as I have been researching Big Cats for about a year, now; working on a screenplay entitled 'The Pride of Cleveland' which takes us on a journey to Africa where the poisoning of these Majestic Beasts is rampant. All to raise awareness, like your collaboration. Congratulations, you must be on cloud 9 upon completing this massive endeavor !

Holy christ Tori this drawing is awesome!
The attention to detail is badass!
Well done indeed!
I was thinking do you want to do a little self promotion thing where i post you on my blog and you post me and we both write about each other? Kinda pitching each other to the world?
It's crazy how much differance things like that make...
Leme know!

Take care!
