Illustration Friday: Trail

UPDATE: Thank you for the Illustration Friday feature! I’m honored!

I’ve been working on a commission for a young kid’s room and I thought it would fit perfectly with this week’s Illustration Friday. The lion is playing a song which all the other animals are enjoying. A pretty innocent piece, for once ;)
