Atelier acrylic & Acryla Gouache on 6" x 6" wood board
Hey! Come back here with my breakfast!
This illustration idea started out in my sketchbook as a tug of war between 2 bunnies, but they weren't going to play nice in my square format, so one bunny then picked up the donut, and before I knew it he took off running! Perhaps he realized how little time I had to complete this. It wasn't until I was working on the colorstudy that I saw that this hearkens back to my 2010 running rabbit theme.
My years of Illustration Friday training helped push me to go from sketch to final painting in just under a week. Thanks to the entire Illustration Friday community for being so supportive and encouraging!
This piece will be in the Too Yummy! group show from July 30 - August 1, 2010. Too Yummy! is the second installment of this fun-filled food-themed event, which will raise funds for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
I needed new business cards for the SCBWI LA Conference next week, so I worked this into the design which I now need to rush over to the printer.
Special thanks to illustrators, Tracy Bishop, Laura Zarrin, Andi Butler for helping me critique my business card tonight. Just when I needed a kidlit critique group in the late evening hours the universe found these wonderous gals who helped me out despite my bad timing of coinciding with kidlitart chat! Multi-tasking all the way!
