The Lion King

Went with younger sisters and Babcia (grandma) to see The Lion King musical today. I may or may not have teared up during the Circle of Life. The first time I can remember being genuinely interested in drawing and animation was after seeing the movie at 4 years old. Afterwards I remember 'drawing' Timon, Pumbaa, and Simba in preschool.

Drew this Simba doodle tonight after coming back from the musical.

Me: Look at what I drew! (gesturing towards scribbles)

Preschool Teacher: Oh what lovely colors! 

Me: It's Timon and Pumbaa!

Preschool Teacher: Yes... very nice.

Wish I had somehow kept some of those doodles. 

 

I credit The Lion King for getting me into animation and art. As a child I loved the characters and at 4 was old enough to realize that someone drew out and animated these characters to make them come to life. I wanted to become like that someone.
