'RHINOCEROS WOMEN SERIES, 2015 COLLECTION.
The first Rhinoceros Woman is unknown! I was greatly moved by this image; the depth and emotion that caught me off guard upon finding it. I saw such peace, but fierceness too. A soft kind of strength. I decided to draw her for fun, and was so impacted by the process and the emotion that came with the finished results that it inspired me to create the Rhinoceros Women series.
