Invasion of the Purple Bunnies




Hey KatGairl Studio Viewers I decided to take up the Illustration Friday Challenge this past week for the first time. So without further ado here is my submission.

Invasion of the Purple Bunnies

The Question you must ask your self is, do these creatures come in peace or is their cuteness merely a deception?


This image was done for Illustration Friday. The word was Propagate.

Propagate: ‘To pass along to offspring and or to cause to spread out and affect a greater number or greater area.’

The first things that came to mind were all those frakkin brooms Mickey created in The Sorcerer's Apprentice and rabbits. And rabbits make me think of purple bunnies. Purple bunnies are an inside joke that started in our theatre in middle school. I don’t know who started it but it was one of those never ending songs that went.

“Purple bunnies, I hate purple bunnies they drive me crazy. Crazy! I’m not crazy, I’m in a room of purple bunnies. Purple bunnies, I hate purple bunnies they drive me crazy…”

And it would go on like that forever. The purple bunnies became so wide spread it infiltrated our high school. Where we would eat purple peep bunnies and laugh manically. I’m pretty sure people just thought we were crazy.

This was the first time i have ever done a SiFi image or painted planets, spaceships and space for that matter.

I'm looking forward to doing another one of these challenges since the force me to get faster at painting. This Illustration took 2 days.
