King Cheetahs, or Cooper’s Cheetahs, are African cheetahs with an extremely rare genetic mutation that gives them oblong spots, stripes down their backs, and a scruffy mane. It’s a recessive gene that appears only when both parents are carriers. I considered themes of self-discovery, identity, inner beauty and destiny while working on “Aeon.”. What does it say to you?    

The original was 100% hand drawn with graphite and ink and colored with watercolors, gouache, and acrylic marker.
