This is one in a series of prints I am making called Farm People. I love farm animals and I love the 1920's and 1930's and it's been great fun anthropamorphizing these animals into period clothing.

Growing up with a family beef farm I had a lot of exposure to beef cows, their structure, and their mannerisms. In the country there is always the phrase "Don't mess with the bull" for good reason. To be near the bull of the herd is to be near a commanding presence of an animal normally larger than the rest of the herd. He grazes and lazes in the sun but can gore you to death if you set a toe over the fence line. I enjoyed putting my Bull in a slick black tuxedo enjoying a glass of merlot. He's the type that wears crisp white spats and a gold ring in his nose.

This image was created by Lana Lambert. She freehand drew the image onto sketch paper in pencil and then transferred it to a linoleum block. She then carved the block by hand and loaded it into a Chandler and Price Pilot Press. The print edition is 100 and was hand pulled using Graphic Chemical Block Print Black on Rives Lightweight 100% Rag Paper. Rives Lightweight has a light cream color to it.

The print dimensions are 5"X6".

Listing is for a single print in a plastic protective sleeve.
