What an Animal – Illustrations of Lions


This is part 2 of the "What an Animal" series here on Design Informer. Today’s showcase will feature the lion.

The lion is perhaps one of the most feared animal in the animal kingdom. The lion is known as the king of the jungle. I have always been fascinated by these powerful and fierce creatures. Let’s look at 15 ferocious illustrations of lions.

      It does not, the tiger is bigger and stronger, and truly lives in a jungle, unlike the lion.
