Shared on his blog he wrote, “I am a HUGE animal lover an it drives me crazy when I see these beautiful creatures destroyed for no good reason. When I heard the news about Cecil I got inspired to create a tribute image. It’s not much but hopefully it will make people think.”

In addition, he also shared a clip of the artwork and the drawing process.

What are your thoughts on this powerful image?
