Lion and the Mouse

Everything counts in life, even the smallest. – Lion and the Mouse

This piece was inspired by Illustration Friday; the theme of the week is Fable.

I started by drawing the eyes and I knew I wanted to draw a lion. I remembered the Illustration Friday theme being “Fable,” and I recalled the story of the Lion and the Mouse.

My memory only recalled the story of the mouse pulling out a thorn out of lion’s paw, and little did I know there is a different version that doesn’t even have a thorn at all.

Both stories teach the moral to never underestimate the little guy and that kindness goes a long away.

Thanks for checking out my drawing.
