Indexer Notes

Rhinoceros chasing Tarzan (painting). Cover pencil, ink, & color credits from Ken Webber (December 17, 2003).

Richard Richmond says this is a Moe Gollub painting and it mimics the way professional westlers vault over the ropes into the wrestling ring. Gollub's animation skill was learned at Disney and the smooth natural look of the action comes from that training.
