Color of my World by tarkheki Color of my World by tarkheki
This was a gift for :iconhewhowalkswithtigers:.

I cannot express my deepest profound admiration and love to Kuba- for being someone who actually "does" as opposed to "talks".
Kuba has traveled continents and countries, dedicating and volunteering his time to Tiger conservation. At a first glance and meeting, you are met with a quiet, soft spoken man who's passions obviously roar greater than the cats he protects. Well educated and versed in the ways of conservation, Kuba's driving force is without a doubt, a Tiger: the endurance and the tenacity to continue even in the hardest of situations, standing up against anything and anyone; even at the expense of oneself.

I honestly believe that if there were more people like Kuba, our problems in this world could be solved. For now, I can honestly say that I feel that Tigers have a fighting chance to survive becuase people like him exist. :heart:

Pencil on Black Craft Paper.
Prints available.

Thank you!
I was aiming for the focal point.. both symbolically and artistically. SO I'm glad it worked. :)

Simply inspiring, you do such thought provoking work. You come off as a philosophical person and someone that contemplates, and because of this, your art is in an even great realm. Amazing piece.

Thank you so much! You really made my all warm and fuzzy with your compliments! I do like to be deeper than the shallow surface, so naturally I want to saturate my art with a lot more than just a pretty picture to look at. Thank you so much for noticing! :heart:

You know you are welcome! It makes your work all the more inspiring and you are one of the main artists I came across that has always impressed me. Plus, you come off as humble and genuinely nice, there are many who just ignore the people giving support, but you take the time to acknowledge, that is a rare quality today. I know you will go far.
