"Wee Willie Strongman" is an original linocut created by Toronto artist Frederica Tomas, harkening back travelling midways and "freak show" banners. This remarkable image stands alone or is a perfect match with "Freaka Savage Jungle Girl". "Wee Willie Strongman" is printed onto japanese paper using a vandercook SP15 proof press and rubber based inks, then painted with watercolours. This art piece, measuring 9" x 14", is under glass in a solid soldered frame ready to hang.
