Aaron Blaise, a former Disney animator who has worked on classic Lion King, Beauty & The Beast, Mulan and other Disney classics, has created a beautiful and moving work of art to pay homage to Cecil. The famous lion of Zimbabwe was recently killed by a dentist as a trophy.
“I am a HUGE animal lover and it drives me crazy when I see that these beautiful creatures are destroyed for no good reason,” Blaise writes in his blog. “As some of you will also know that I was one of the animators of” The Lion King. “When I heard the news about Cecil I was inspired to create a tribute image, it’s not much, but hopefully it will make people think.” The image was also accompanied by a fascinating speed drawing video.
Blaise’s inspiring and moving image inspires good memories of the spirit of Mufasa when he despised Simba in the Lion King. If your image inspires you to take a pen and create your own art, be sure to visit their site and the Youtube channel, where you have online drawing classes.
