Zach is a sweet-natured, slightly goofy, very regal long-haired tuxedo boy with possibly the biggest, softest heart of any animal I have ever known. He’s also extremely photogenic, so I post pictures of him often on Facebook. One of my similarly cat-loving friends, Paula, referred to him as “The Mighty Sink Lion”.
Fast-foward a couple of years. I’ve recently taken some classes to help me get started building my own business (slowly). I’ve tried and discarded more than one name mentally – nothing seemed to fit. One day while driving home from work, I was thinking about this yet again and for whatever reason I mentally flashed on this picture of our Mighty Sink Lion.
And realized… I really liked that name. It fit. A lot of my artwork centers around our four-footed friends. I liked the tongue-in-cheek whimsy of it. I thought… it just might do!
When I got home I logged into my domain registrar and checked the domain name. It was available! From working in the internet industry for some years now, I was well aware how hard it is to come by an original “dotcom” domain name anymore. So I snapped up the domain name, and Sink Lion Designs was born.
