Disney’s The Lion King, has always been one of my favorite movies. These mutated Simba shapes stated during my Printmaking class. Eventually working their way in to other media like acrylic paint. Simba had always been one of my favorite characters of the movies.

The Lion King is getting a remake, this upcoming year! If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, find it here. The trailer gave me some ideas for new artworks!
Remember when Simba puts his paw in Mufasa’s. Here is the scene. I paired it with the quote “Remember who You are” Find that scene here. Both scenes have important in the movie, representing Simba and Mufasa’s bond. First when Simba puts his paw in his fathers paw print, he realized he is still a cub and has a lot to learn. A grown up Simba searches deep with in his heart to find a memory of his father, reminding him to be his true self.
The gold paw print represents Simba’s in the middle of zen style Circle of Life. The Circle of Life is a symbol that means we are all connected. Here is the song. In the opening scene Mufasa gives Simba a speech and says this……
“When we die, our bodies become the grass. And the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.”
Here is that scene.
Finally, I added African symbols of Hakuna Matata (No Worries) along with my version, “Life Happens, No Worries”
This design is inspired by both movies. I have a galaxy circle of life to show we are all connected. Here is the song. In the opening scene Mufasa gives Simba a speech and says this……
“When we die, our bodies become the grass. And the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.”
Here is that scene.
Also, the double paw print appears again. First when Simba puts his paw in his fathers paw print, he realized he is still a cub and has a lot to learn. A grown up Simba searches deep with in his heart to find a memory of his father, reminding him to be his true self.
Finally, I add the quote “We are one” from The Lion King 2. When Kira gets fed up with her father claiming that her pack and Scar’s pack can’t be the same because of the fued Simba had with Scar… She throws his words “We are One” back at him. This shows Simba that Kovu is the same as them. A lion. Here is that song.
This work is also inspired by Recovery Fund that Disney started called Protect the Pride to help protect the African lions. Learn more about Protect the Pride here.  The text “We are one” are followed by a fully grown lion and a lion cub to show that all the lions need protection.
Thank you for reading.
