Many artists like art to be serious and meaningful, which is fine by me, but hey, I think the world is big enough to have fun art as well as serious art.
This is based on a fluffy toy, but I changed the colours of his scarf, added stripes and gave him stripes too. I used coloured pencils and fineliner pens for this. Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit obviously influenced the manufacturers of this fluffy toy and I was probably think of him when I redesigned the scarf :)
And here is the esteemed model himself:
I have now completed fourteen bunnies …. fifteen if you count the one of the alien looking for his rabbit:
Bunnies of the world unite –
give those foxes an awful fright :)
hoist your Bunny flag up high;
raise your paws up to the sky.
Bunnies all with fluffy tails
conquer England, Scotland, Wales,
sail across the ocean blue,
conquer Yanks and Ozzies too :)
