I think I can safely say that tigers are my favorite animals to draw. I mean, what’s not to love? You’ve got the stripes, the big teeth, the predator eyes… so much fun. When I’m at the gym, I always draw a fierce-looking tiger on a little whiteboard so that I can look at my power animal while I’m pumping iron. I love drawing tigers so much that I usually try to talk myself into drawing another animal for any given project, just so I don’t look too tiger-crazy.

So, really it’s not so hard to translate all these looks onto our very own emotional space tiger. I can’t wait to get further into the story, where Karma really gets her chance to express herself!
