Bertram Bunniweather realized only too late that he had neglected to read the fine print. There were strings attached.

“There are always strings attached,” he murmured under his breath.


The Illustration Friday theme this week is “strings.”

    Well, hello. Poor Bertram. He should look for a lawyer and find a loophole that may help him out of his predicament! Love your take on the topic and the texture and rich purple of the background!

    Oh! Even a bunny puppet doesn’t like to be dominated! Poor Bertram, he must feel blue now!

    Love the bunny’s expression and the purple background really reflects his situation!

  3. I adore!!! Very charming!

    Bertram holds the strings to my heart! Are you working on the prototype for this yet? Well, get busy 🙂

    The way you postured him makes for a wonderful design against the purple. D-licious!!

    Sometimes I feel just like him!

  14. Sigh. One of life’s difficult lessons. Poor bunny. Great drawing, and great expression! Love the textured background, too.

    Very lovely & beautiful piece.
    I do agree with the rest.
    The “strings” mood is so well expressed here, where this rich purple background set a great contrast to the white fluffy bunny.
    His eyes & mouth expression say “I am forced to…”

    Beautiful in its simplicity and precision (those straight lines! that lovely purple!) Combined with the text, it reminds me of a page out of The Mystery of Harris Burdick. Do you know that book?
