Illustration Friday: Trouble

Hell in a Hand Basket
click image for a larger view


I think a hand basket is the fastest way to transport oneself to Hades after a deed done bad. I chose a bunny for the basket ride because a fuzzy white bunny seems so innocent, just like a newborn kitten. Going to hell seems like a strong punishment for unwittingly stealing carrots! Must be a seasonal influence...Halloween is lurking.

I don't know. I'm thinking the bunny might kick diablo's pointy red tail, what with the devil being so cute and small. Nice painting.

Your collages are wonderful!

You have such a unique style, it's really very cool. This illo is very tense, kinda scarey, there's great atmosphere with that stone wall and dim lighting. There's also something a little bit Silence of the Lambs about it ..."it puts the lotion on it's skin, it put the lotion in the basket"

...except your bunny is tooo cute.

Oh-no.. I hope the bunny likes his carrots roasted. Wonderful 3-D style.

I really like the 3d depth in your work. In this piece the contrast between the white bunny and devil is really nice.

Oh no the poor bunny wabbit. It looks so dark and scarey down there. hopefully someone will realise that they've made a mistake and pull the rope back up super quick.
