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.

Note: Please click on the images to see them in their websites and to learn more about their artists.

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