Eostre Bunny


I didn't really finish this, but here it is. I was looking at the photography of Hans Silvester, who spent five years traveling to the Omo Valley to capture these amazing images from Africa. The photos caused me to think about the roots of Easter in human culture and wonder about possible connections to the Easter bunny. I know this is a little odd, but it was fun to think about.
I did this for our team blog at Pogo, which can be found here.

Wow. I really like this one, Julie. The fusing of your life-drawing chops and your imagination makes for a powerful end-result.

really? well, i drew that pose in a quick sketch workshop. the pose reminded me of something tribal, which got me thinking about those photos from Africa in that book (which I own), and then Easter was happening. I was thinking about spring and Easter and the Easter bunny and that's what happened...tribal Easter Bunny. Poor bunny.

Thank you Jamie. :)

and also you said a while ago that you thought i might want to try more things from my imagination, so that was in there too.

yeah, i recognized the pose from your earlier Life-drawing post, and I knew that you had something Easter-themed cooking for your team-blog...

but you have metabolized all the elements into something uniquely you... that comes from your own mind.

I love it when artists do that.

MORE PLEASE!

I like that there's a really creepy, primal element to this. Wearing a bunny head, how awesome is THAT. You rock, Jules. Oh yeah, and execution is fabulous.
