Bunny Power - Domino Style

When I saw Carla Sonheim's post this morning about drawing a fun little bunny picture, how could I not draw Domino in this style?  The only problem...with the 5,000 pens (give or take) I own, they're all waterproof!  I really couldn't believe it, not a single one of the markers or pens I own is water based.  No worries, walnut ink bleeds beautifully.  The only trouble I had was my nibs didn't put a lot of ink down so I had to double some of the lines to get good color in the drawing.

I worked again from my favorite photograph of Domino that you might remember from this post.  I love this picture because this is how he is always looking at us.  His left eye is paralyzed (and thus, probably blind) and he has a head tilt so he's always looking at us with his "good" right side.  Gotta love his little unicorn look too with one ear up and one ear down.  I absolutely love Carla's way of simplifying the details and getting to the essence of my little bun.

Oh, I like this very much. Definitely an individual rabbit and not a generic member of the species.

I had the same problem as you--finding a pen that wasn't waterproof!

Hi Carolyn, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I have had fun wandering around yours and will definately return to say hi! I love your picture of Domino and the walnut ink looks great.
Kind Regards, Karen
