"Africa"

This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was Africa. The first thing I think of when I hear Africa is rhinos! Rhinoceros are one of my favorite animals. I used an Old World map of Africa for my background, and clipart from Arthur's Free Clipart.


After I made my postcard, I thought about other ideas for Africa postcards. I decided to make a second one with a rhinoceros. I used old scroll paper as my background. Then I selected only the horn of a rhinoceros and rotated it to look somewhat like the shape of Africa. The foreground is based on a print I have somewhere, showing a man hiding in a palm tree, looking down on a rhinoceros.
