Remembering Cecil

So I set myself a little tribute project over the weekend to draw Cecil the Lion.

As you may already know Cecil was a star in Zimbabwe and one of their most famous animal celebrities.

Unfortunately the magnificent creature was brutally killed by a Poacher on July 1st 2015. I have a passion for nature and the world we live in and it saddens me that someone could perform such a horrific act of wickedness!

However, this is the world we live in and we can't change what has happened, however, this may have been the catalyst needed to make people think twice about their actions and help the battle to protect Lions and the natural reserves they live in.

This is my tribute for Cecil, but, also for all of the other Lions and Lionesses that are killed by poachers each year!

If this post has affected you in any way and you want to help protect and preserve these beautiful creatures then please visit this fantastic organisation's site who i've been lucky enough to produce my 'dolphin in a bowl illustration' for, The Born Free Foundation, and make a donation!
