Maybe it's Maybelline...

This is Hodd The Bunny. He is a real life ceramic statue that you can paint in one those studios for a set amount of dollars. I know this was popular in the early 80s. My mom used to go to downtown Columbia on certain evening and paint these type of things. She was pretty good, painted a very realistic owl and such. I can't even tell you how many of those things my brother and I broke accidentally.

Let's get back to Hodd, this was a gag gift from my friend Rob. We often will try to find the most horrible gift you can get someone for the cheapest price possible. At this particular moment, he was going through a yard sale phase and found this treasure. A rabbit painted mostly white with pastel clothing to fill the rest of him out. The thing that was striking and creepy at the same time, is that someone decided to glue fake eyelashes on this rabbit. Not just fake eyelashes, but eyelashes that have too much mascara on them. So I named him Hodd. Now he lives in the laundry room on top of the cabinets batting his luscious eyelashes at all who enter that domain.

Anyway, this was a first attempt at inking him. I drew this a long time ago when I decided I wasn't drawing enough anymore. I plan on revisiting Hodd, and give him the artistic immortality he deserves. [ink]

So the main reason for this blog is to post scribbles I have done. I may post other illustrators' stuff that I find and want to share. I may post things unrelated to drawing. One thing you can count on is that I will bore you to death...too DEATH.
