This Artist Creates Incredible Tribute To Cecil The Lion, And We’re Speechless.

This has to be the best way to honor Cecil's memory.


By now, everyone has heard the tragic story of Cecil, the protected lion who was killed by a Minnesota dentist and his Zimbabwe guides. The internet is angry, Jimmy Kimmel is angry…we’re all angry.

So when Aaron Blaise, former Disney artist, heard about it, he decided to make something beautiful, rather than contributing to the negative social media posts.

Take a look at his art and “making of” video below:


Blaise actually worked on The Lion King, and he was reminded of Simba seeing his father, Mufasa, looking down at him from the clouds. It’s beautiful. And, he recorded the process, so we could see an artist at work.

Do you think this tribute is as beautiful as we do?
