Linocuts That Blow My Mind

I have a special place in my heart for linocuts.  Much like my love for Sharpie drawings, the black and white contrast and bold shapes and lines really grab my eye.  I haven't made any since college, but I'm hoping to start again soon.  Usually before starting a new vein of artwork, I like to do a bit of research to get inspired.  Here are some cool pieces I stumbled upon that I hope you'll appreciate as much as I did.
