When you’re on “safari” you never know when you might be confronted with a big ol’ “Crash of Rhinos.”

Original: 12″ x 12″ linocut.

    What a great and bold style! 🙂

    Wow, amazing print. I just love linocut’s!! Very well done, I like the fact that they are front view, facing the viewer. Will crash all right! 🙂

    Oh, I’ve been looking forward to your “safari” piece…this topic was perfect for you! How wonderful to see one of your lino works…it has such strength and power!

    Heisann! A bit more rough than usual – I like it, too!
    Good feeling, breaking the frame, the race is merciless… ;:OD)

    I LOVE your artwork. This is just an amazing piece! The personality you put into your characters is astounding. I’m so inspired.

    I like what you do so much I’ve taken the liberty of featuring your blog and artwork on this week’s FATuesday Artist Spotlight. Link:

    Have a wonderful week!

    I was looking forward to seeing your take on this prompt! Awesome work… really unique.

    That’s got some pop to it…nice weightiness here and an interesting juxtaposition with your light airy linework….

      Thanks for the feedback by the way! You can see my fine art stuff on my other blog “Musings by GM” if you want.

    I love this one, Penelope! My great aunt, one of Oregon’s important artists from the great depression era, did many of these kinds of prints–though more blockish looking. I have no idea how you were able to accomplish such graceful lines on a linocut. You are amazing, my dear. I’m so glad I found you!

    Ha! Here I am again, visiting to see what’s new. Today is FATuesday again–I wanted to visit just to let you know one more time, how much I enjoy your work.

    I have told everyone I know about you. Your artwork is a joy and a delight to my eyes.

    Whoa, that’s awesome Penelope. Very different. I love the thick black. Great work. Is that what Rhinos are called? A Crash? Monkeys are a Troop no?

    Very nice work.

    I keep thinking about having a Cintiq. It is eating at me. I neeeeeeeed it. I think I am going to get one this year. . .

    Great perspective. I’m a real fan of printmaking, and especially the monotone rough cut linocut/woodblock look.

  19. May 29, 2011 4:27 am

    You do gorgeous line work and I supposed it’s no coincidence that you also do printmaking. I love the power of the linocut.

    Saw this work by James Jean which reminded me of your stuff. Except more gruesome and gamy.
