IF ... Bicycle


   Rabbit was fully energized and taunting, “Tricks are for kids – and kids, above all,
   know about fun.” It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. Again and again, we practiced
   aerodynamic feats to the applause of the diners at Denny’s.
   Here’s our Happy Easter pose …

  6. I'll bet those Denny's patrons were jealous of all the fun..
    Nice simple intertwining of shapes with a hint of depth... I like the rabbit ears and the cast shadow for this reason. As well, the folds are fun.
    And look! There's a whole bottle of 'Jus de Lapin' for afterwards... ~and with its night vision boost, they can do it all over again in the evening and not have to worry about the time!
    what fun...

  8. Well frankly, we had patronized Denny's only to kill time, as we were supposed to meet The Hamster there. (Rumor is, he ended up at the one across town.) And yes, an evening performance is in the works. Please attend! There will be free samples of Jus de Lapin. It's truly a potent wonder, and refreshingly delicious. - mouse

  13. What a clever rabbit. I love the play of flatness and depth and the understated description of form with the subtle value shifts. The contrast of implied shapes and planes to the sharp detail makes this show a hit!

    the suggestions of spatial panels with such a simple background wash is very nice.
