( Everyday Matters drawing exercises )
[ Water-soluble pastels, sepia pen, and a waterbrush ]
Bunny’s been around for almost twenty years, and one of the few childhood “toys” that I still see on a regular basis. He’s a little rumpled, but still quite dapper in spirit.
“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
