Charcoal and colored pencil illustrations
Photo taken on a shore of Lake Superior. The sleeping lion represents the strength I accrue through quietness and solidarity. "What more humbleness can be shown than for a lion to stay calm and gentle, all the while being capable of extreme power. I am strong and powerful, yet I am calm and gentle."
I used an 8-inch Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain LX200s telescope to take this photograph of the Andromeda galaxy, and decided it would be cool to photoshop in a whale. A space whale.
