Leo - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon Leo - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon
Here is the next image in the series I did last year for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Leo: July 23 - August 22. Fixed Fire sign. Loyalty, leadership, generousity, outgoing, ambitious, lionhearted. Color: Orange, red, gold. Glowing warm colors. Associated with a roaring fire, the Sun, the Heart. Leos tend to be talented, creative, and dramatic, warm and enthusiastic, dynamic and idealistic, but can also be vain and stubborn. Natural leaders. Leo here is a woman in glowing armor with a fiery red mane of hair, carrying the banner of her people. :) (Also: sunflowers are one of the many symbols associated with the Leo, thus the field of sunflowers.)

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at www.llewellyn.com.

Beautiful picture, great concept, superbly executed, but isn't Llywelyn a Welsh female name?

I've mostly seen it as a male name. It's just the name of the company that hired me and published the company. :)

Sorry, typo on my part. I meant male name. I have a passing interest in Welsh medieval history.

It wasn't a complaint. I was just curious for the reason behind your title. So thank you for the answer and for sharing your talent.

I love your series! It's so inventive and expressive of the signs, this has to be my favorite though, you can just feel the summer and pride in her stature and smile :)

This is amazing. Although I'm technically I'm a Leo I never felt like one. More than half of the things about leo I feel like, don't apply to me. The few things that do apply to Leos that I feel are apart of me, however, are a very strong part of me, so I suppose there's that. I love this whole set, and although I love some of them much better than this one, this does give me a small sense of pride for my sign.

I am a Leo, and I certainly, let us say, agree with this picture. I think it represent our sign perfectly. There's lots of sun in it, in all these banners, sunflowers, gold armour and golden hair... And Leo is a sun sign after all. I really feel somehow honored while looking at this beautiful artwork, thank you for it!

Leo is technically a masculine sign (as was Aquarius), but I chose to depict the sign as a woman. :)

Gorgeous, every picture you've been uploading has been gorgeous even though i've not commented on each one.

Not only is each one just great technically, they all portray something we don't see as much as we should in fantasy art, whether it be more diverse body types or different skin tones, or in this case function armor for a woman hahahhaa.

Bless you for being such a continuing source of inspiration to not only be a great artist but a responsible artist.

Thanks! I like Leo a lot, too. :) It's my ascendant sign, and I love a lot of the things associated with the sign even though I don't really have a lot in common with it. XD
