This cheetah, inspired by a photograph by Macropus Rufus, is a postcard sized piece that is flying off to Poland.
This was mainly drawn for Million Dandelions who is collecting a book of bear illustrations in memory of her beautiful husband, murdered just after last Christmas. The tragedy of her story haunted me. Please, if you feel you wish to contribute, visit her deviantart - it's mentioned in the journal.
Because she is Russian, I decided to research Russian fables for this piece. I selected the Cat and the Fox, which also features a bear. You can read it here
