Some background information, I began this drawing out of nowhere on January 22nd, 2009. After I filled about 45% of the page (All I really did was the lion) I stopped. I had clocked 12 solid hours of work on this before I finally put it away. After seeing it daily for the last three years, I never knew how to finish it until today. It took me about 7 more hours to get to a state of completion. At least enough to show people it...I could probably invest another handful of hours detailing it more, making things a little bit neater, etc. All of of is done in black ink which ranged from being a black sharpie in thick and fine point, normal ball point pens, and my favorite, a pen with a precise tip that resembles a needle.

I am very proud of the lion in particular, there is no pencil outlines underneath it, this drawing is solid ink.  Wink Well, solid ink minus the splash of color for the lion's eye.

All of the quotes on it are 'drug' related as when it was first started it was done so under an influence. It seemed very fitting for the nature of the lion.

I'm not really looking for criticism on this as I will more than likely never do anything like this again, I had never done anything like this before which I think makes it even more awesome. The lines lose a lot of their uniformity as time goes on due to the cramping this type of drawing inflicts in your hand.
