A fun graphic I did for Lion King a couple months ago.
For people who don't know my history with this movie - here's a debriefing:
- First movie I saw in theaters.
- Also the second movie I saw in theaters. When my family went to watch Angels in the Outfield, I begged my mom to take me to see Lion King again instead.
- I watched this movie everyday for a year after it came out on VHS, memorizing every line. I probably learned most of my English this way.
- In second grade, I realized everyone had a middle name except for me. So I dubbed myself Jackie Simba Chang and tagged JSC on every notebook.
- When I watched the behind the scenes as a kid, I knew I wanted to do animation/something related.
- Saw Lion King 3D in theaters as an adult by myself and cried not even a second into the film. I was a nostalgic mess.
I didn't think I'd ever be doing art for Disney or Lion King since I was rather experimental with my stuff throughout college. At least I know that 5 year old JSC is very proud and I'm feeding that inner child... that's gotta count for something!
