Might - Illustration Friday




Wishing with all their might.

I thought it'd be fun to do a bunny in an old-timey strong-man outfit, with a little beard and moustache, framing him as a carney hoisting a barbell, maybe a snake at his feet - but the idea for this image won out - a wishing well with hopeful little bunnies. I think the choice has everything to do with my mood today. Silly + sardonic vs. wispy and nostagic. Wispy + nostalgic won!
