Red Lion is a Rapid City character who brings in some magic and strangeness. He is the living embodiment of the force of destruction.
His physical form is slightly abstract and very expressive. For some reason, this character ends up being a mirror for the artist. When Jason Krause drew him, he looked like Jason Krause.
When Micah Faulkner drew him, he looked like Micah Faulkner.
When Kav, who is immune to curses, draws him, he looks like a big lion dude.
When I recently asked Distracula artist, Jay Kennedy, to draw a Red Lion pin-up for me, I neglected to mention the curse.
And it seems that ignorance of the curse is no defense.
