Joseph With The Box
MEDIUM: Coloured Pencil
Joseph is a Black Mained Lion cub who adores vanilla ice cream. He was about three months old in this piece of work. He was owned by some friends of mine who ran the Siberian Tiger Foundation in Ohio (now defunct). He was not big enough to go out to the compound with the teo Siberian Tigers and fully grown femail lion. So he and I would sleep on the floor of the lliving room together. Such memories I have of that time in my life. I just had to immortalize my little friend in coloured pencil.
He was so mischievious with bounless energy and fun – as any kitten would be.
