“Leo” is the second of our zodiac-themed designs, following “Pisces.” Every design in the zodiac series results from a fun exercise in which I study a zodiac symbol and represent the attributes of the zodiac in an illustration. I try to capture the lure, astrology, and personality traits commonly associated with each sign.
Leos are considered to be strong and full of confidence (verging on arrogance). I focused on the theme of strength, the delicate school girl astride the lion depicts that true strength isn't physical, but instead, a sort of inner strength. The strength to pursue a goal, the strength to persevere, and the resilience to rise after a fall. So even a small frame can house a true beast!
