So cute! I love the depth of the picture and the towering background and then the campfire-coziness of the characters.

Quite the tall tale the big bunny is throwing together. Nothing can ward off the towering clutter like a good bunny horror story, and maybe some hot chocolate. This picture is magic, dude.

What a feast for the eyes here! Love how the bunny seems to somehow make his way (along with his little pal) into these drawings!

Help! Someone please pick me up off the floor! Honestly, this is AMAZING. I want to study all the little pen strokes and the details and the whimsy. Just when I think you've outdone yourself, you go and do it again. Emily, can you please make this one available as a print? I'd love to hang it!

OMG! this illo is fantastic! awesome clutter! love the perspective and all the tiny details!

1Q: how much time do you spend on a piece like this?!?! wow!

Emily said...

um this one took about 6 hours... from sketch to finish... its the shading and filler that takes the bulk of the time.

Waaahhhhhwww! That's some gorgeous clutter. And of course the adorable bunnies and hedgie are right in the thick of things. They sure do look cozy! Wonderful stuff!
