To celebrate the fact that my rather talented friend Verity has just put some rather splendid Lion badges on sale I thought I'd do a wee post on Lions. Because I realised that I like a lot of lion related things and well...its not more complex than that. So first up Verity's badges. Aren't they great? Laser cut and neatly packaged these friendly fellas are a bargain at $14. Also they look a bit like biscuits.
Beatrice Alemagna writes wonderful, whimsical books with beautifully unique illustrations that provide a much needed break from the saccharine sweet fodder in most children's books. My absolute favourite is Un Lion a Paris. Which is, in every way, flawless.
And this is a Lion I drew exactly one year ago. I still rather like this one. Which is a rarity. Maybe he'll feature in some kind of story one day.
