heavy too

March 17, 2008



Murgatroyd was just your average, run-of-the-mill bunny, until that fateful day he hopped into Bob’s Music Center, picked up a guitar and felt the pure, raw power of the Flying V.

Illustration Friday’s theme this week is “Heavy.”

    Looks like he was in such a hurry to get back to jammin’ on that six-string that he forgot to boil the eggs before coloring them! 🙂

    Rockin’ illustration!

    Also, checked out some of Tom’s photos. Really good! Did he take the one of the little girl in the burned house? Is photography his profession?

  8. That bunny is destined to be a juke box hero!

    Funny that you should have chosen the venerable Gibson Flying V for your heavy metal bunny. The first Flying V left the Kalamazoo factory in March, 1958, 50 years ago!
    This bunny clearly knows his cool, vintage axes.
    And with Easter just around the corner, what better chick magnet?

  11. Ryan Loghry Says:

    Great illustration, a very lively pose, and a great story too.

  12. Oh my, you’re right — this is too weird! How could we both do guitar-playing bunnies on the same day??? Granted, mine is the great-great-great grandfather of yours, but still…

    LOVE his bracelet, by the way!

  13. OH MY! Won’t all those rockers be jealous when Heavy Metal Bunny starts his tour. Or is it a she. No matter, it is fabulous. I can HEAR that riff right now!

    You are the master of animal characters and perfect anatomy!

    Cautionary tale: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket, Thrash metal will make omelets of us all. Fierce bunny.
