I have long wanted to take my work in a new direction, and creating a zodiac series for the Drawadot online store gave me the perfect opportunity. For this series, I thought it might be fun to start out with free-flowing ink and then almost pull the figure out of the background once the ink dried. Applying the colors wet on wet and letting them flow got me away from planning every detail before I painted, and it was a really fun challenge to figure out how to make it look like a lion.

Leo I – Leo I was meant to be a test of whether or not I would be able to pull off what I was planning. While I was thinking about Leos and lion, I suddenly remembered that a pack of lions is called a pride. June was also Pride month, so I decided to choose rainbow colors for my lion.and make a statement about Pride in support of the LGBTQ+ community. The response was wonderful so I decided I would also make it available for purchase in the Draw A Dot shop.
