In the Skin of a Lion

In the Skin of a Lion

 

 

Gouache, oil pencil and archival ink on mix media paper

 

11″ x 14″
$ 175

 

Status: AVAILABLE

The title of this piece is inspired by the original book “In the Skin of a Lion”, which I read back in university.

This artwork describes how as a woman, we are always wearing a mask to portray a stronger figure in public. I chose the mask of a lion, instead of a lioness because I feel that masculinity is often associated with strength.

It’s time to unmask ourselves and reveal to the world our inner strength. Strength can come in many forms- it can be both soft and vulnerable.

There is something special about reading from a paperback. Perhaps it is the feeling of crisp paper running between the fingers , or the satisfaction of flipping a brand new page as the story progresses.

This piece took MUCH longer than I expected to finish. From concept design to implementation, there were alot of meticulous details that I wanted to stay true too.

It was very difficult to incorporate all the princesses in the classic Mermaid Lagoon from Peter Pan, but I’m glad I was able to finish up this project at the end. Hope you would appreciate the work as much I enjoyed designing it.
