Illustration Friday: Wilderness

I've been face-to-face with a tiger. Yes, it was in a zoo but all that separated us was half a foot and some chicken wire. I could have reached out and touched him. (But i didn't!)

It was genuinely awe-inspiring. And, looking into that face and listening to the thud of its paws against the ground and taking in the smell of him, it seemed clear to me - the tiger does not live in the wilderness, wherever it goes, it takes the wilderness with it.

This is an absolutely stunning piece of art-- gorgeously rendered, brilliant color, a compelling composition. But it's also got me humming "Eye of the Tiger," which negates some of the magesty. Not your fault at all! ;)
