Meant to be viewed mostly as an abstract of the essence of that most beautiful and endangered of icons, the tiger, this digital work employs richly textured layers and several different illustrative approaches to render the animal. A continuation of my ongoing endangered animals series; i know that we all know what a tiger looks like, but its always a theme worth revisiting. Their place in the natural world is very important, and so is their regal home in our collective psyche. We do not have to see a day when all the tigers are gone from earth; or any other animal that we endanger by our own actions. This artwork is just one more small step in raising awareness of that fact.
