Admiral Lion

Yes I'm a grown man and this is how I spend my time.



To be honest this is merely a sketch of a greater idea. I'd love to do a series of portraits like this but as realistic oil paintings. Does a monocle make a lion look more evil or just smarter? A little bit of both in my opinion. I definitely see this guy wringing his hands at the thought of his most recent capture. Any animal/career archetypes you'd like to see happen?

An ostrich train conductor?
A lorakeet in an old-school scuba diving suit?
A cheetah with a racing helmet?

These are all good ideas though I think I'll trade the Lorikeet in an old school scuba diving suit for a meerkat in a vintage swimsuit.

If you ever go to the dessert place in North Park at University and 30th, they have an amazing painting of a tiger businessman.

I would like to see a rabbit professor.
