This took me forever it seemed! Even though I started it today. Heh... anyways, I had it originally with all its stripes where they properly belong, but then I did something silly and lost all my progress. So on my second try I made the tiger jumping out of its stripes- more illustrative of the excerpt from William Blake I added - you can't truly capture a tiger with drawn lines and words. Thus it's falling apart in a surreal sense. Hope you like it.

You did an amazing job on this!  I really like how the stripes are falling off of the tiger as it leaps.
This is true art.

What makes the image strong is its looseness. Love it.

Then, that was a very fortunate accident. You have great drawings, perhaps your lighting technique is what I envy more.
