Lord Garland Jenkins
I saw this in Urban Outfitters and wanted to buy it; however, I couldn't justify spending $38 on a mass-produced print from UrbO. This cheetah, properly named Lord Garland Jenkins, is amazing though. Check out that crisp bowtie and sweetass eye patch. I bet he got that in his youth while taking down a zebra or water buffalo. Upon further inspection, this print is by an artist in Portland named Ryan Berkley and he has many other dignified animal portraits up for sale on his Etsy, including a tiger dressed in General's garb and a lion in a snappy suit. Such a great idea blending the majesty of the animal kingdom with the mundane of our world to create such fanciful images.
