Artwork Information:

"Water Boy aka Puddles” is a part of the 2016 series “A Crash of Rhinos.”

“A Crash of Rhinos” is a fifteen drawings set depicting the story of Five Rhino, six Mechanical Rhinos, the Crash Mountains, the Domed Cities and a population forces to leave their world and solar system.

This drawing is a mixed medium of ink, colored pencil and pastels on heavy paper.

Water Boy aka Puddles is the first drawing. He was the pose that I was going to use across different eras of time, but after three drawings of the same rhino in the same pose, I had to find more models.

The backgrounds for the individual rhinos didn't get started till all the rhinos and the background scenery were drawn. Then Water Boy was the last of the rhinos to get his background done. His world is a warm flooded world from global warming (aka Climate Change). This is the first background to have other animals, the birds in the far background and the koi fish up front.
