Have something you'd like as a crossword poem?
I have also been working on a commissioned "Defeated Lion" series, the idea focusing on the loser of a battle instead of the glorified king of the jungle. An interesting concept, though I can't take credit for it. So I found pictures of lions and edited them in both Photoshop and Illustrator. Then I printed the image, attached it to a canvas, painted over it with oils, and finished them with a thick epoxy varnish.
