IF: Music

A little doodle of Rabbit serenading his loved one on his parsnip trumpet. I thought I'd bring this rabbit back after reading Melanie Matthew's insightful post; 5 things I've learnt so far as a freelancing noob. I've never really stuck with the same character so thought it would be good practice to draw Rabbit in different poses, engaging in different activities. So you might see him again some time soon, just need to think of a name for him.

IF: Skinny

An entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme 'Skinny'. I'm not sure whether I like the term 'What's the skinny?' or not - it pops up every now and again on the web and seems to be seeping into common speech. Funny how American New Yorker-isms are so potent they can rapidly spread across the Atlantic. Reminds me of Steven Poole's article on the term 'put it to me this way': http://unspeak.net/put-it-to-me-this-way/
