Here is a cool post on Abduzeedo all about lion themed logo inspiration. He has posted a few other logo compilations and this one is drawn from a range of sites and shows off a suite of cool logos all with lions in them. I have a great deal of admiration for a neato logo. I just dont know enough Illustrator to empower me to do this sort of thing with enough clarity. Designing the idea is one thing, pulling it off to completion like these is extra cool.
