I always love another helmeted bird, but the rhino detail is amazing...the horn, the eye...craziness.

The background and grungy border aren't doing anything for me. But the actual rhino and bird illustrations are killer.

I agree. I don't really care for the border/background. The illustration is incredible though

I think it holds a lot of symbolism. The red line obviously representing the Rhino's loss of a horn from poachers and the border signifies the turmoil the species is undergoing as it becomes more endangered. I think it fits the print very well. It's very different from past Horkeys which I think is why I like it so much and why some old school Horkey fans are "meh."
