“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

GIRL & LION_90 minutes


"What is it, Bana? "

"It's called 'rain'," answered the lion.

"Oh..." she pauses a moment, looking out at the lush jungle as it comes alive in symphony with the sudden downpour.

"Does it hurt?"


The girl looks back with a startled smile, as the lion's laugh barrels through his chest.

"Haha! Not all new things have to hurt, Sahra."

You may have answered this before...hopefully you won't mind answering this again.

Are your drawings all done with pen and ink or are they digital?

Thanks,
K

Well done! Animals and jungle or forest-type backgrounds are kinda hard/annoying to draw sometimes. You really make it look easy!

Your ability to capture a mood or story moment never ceases to amaze me. I'd love to see you do this entire story, but I tend to doubt there is a market for it here in the U.S. Maybe Europe.

Sigh . . .
