Rabbit Season by SquirrelShaver Rabbit Season by SquirrelShaver
This one has been passed around the block quite a bit in it's short life so far. Some of you who attended the C2E2 show in Chicago this past April may have seen me sketching this out. That's where it started, me having some fun and it was just a warm up sketch for the show. Then one of my fellow artists mentioned wile I was sketching it that this might be a good t-shirt design. and idea that had legs for about... an hour.

Then it was set up to be a commission for a friend which was my full intentions until opportunity arose it's head a few weeks ago, so now it is officially am "Escape From Wonderland" variant for Jay Company Comics.

This will make it's debut at a show in Toronto towards the end of August if I'm correct and available exclusively at the Jay Company booth.

I wanted to try something a little different with this and give it a more pin-up feel so I channeled some Adam Hughes influence here. Looking back the dynamics of this piece could have been displayed stronger and more "in your face" than they are, especially for a convention exclusive, but hopefully the simple fun factor of the piece will move it off the shelves and into the hands of the people.

Hope you all enjoy these final pencils as much as I enjoyed drawing them!

I would happily wear that t-shirt. It's badass, I've seen so few good bunny girls, especially one coming out of a hat. I love it. I want one...

Aww, like I said before, no hard feelings if you end up wanting to sketch me something else.

Harrison's as a company will be at NYCC, but I don't think I'm going :(
Really it's because I'd have to miss 3 classes to even go, so I doubt I'll make it. If things change, I'll definitely let you know. Maybe I can make a day trip out there for one day.
