Graphite pencil on paper
Drawn: January 2010Close artwork
Sumatran tiger "Roque" was rescued by The Born Free Foundation from a Spanish pet shop, where he was being illegally traded as a cub. Since being re-homed in 2002 to an infinitely more suitable environment at Born Free's Bannerghatta tiger sanctuary in southern India - the management of which I formerly oversaw - Roque has grown into the magnificent adult that inspired this drawing, which I completed in early 2010, the Chinese Year of the Tiger.
