Monty Python and Killer Bunnies

Pen and Ink illustration of the Killer Bunny from Monty Python and the Holy Grail by Lani Mathis of GreenSpaceGoodsI'm paying homage to Monty Python, and a great teacher- Mr. Dan Henderson. This is my submission to Illustration Friday.

I had one of the greatest illustration professors anyone could ask for. Dan Henderson is an incredibly inspiring kind man who never made anyone feel pressured to work inside of his box. So one day, he asked us to create an image illustrating a movie title and the feeling of fear. Well, I immediately got the giggles, because the only thing I could picture in my mind was the evil bunny from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Unfortunately, my vision didn't fit within the rules of the assignment. It had to be a movie title. Try as I might, I couldn't get that bunny out of my head, so I ask Mr. Henderson if he would allow it. It took a little pleading, but I think he was mostly glad that I was excited about illustration. Oh, and I also insisted that it had to be done in ballpoint pen. He wasn't thrilled about that either. I still love this bunny. There are always things you would have done differently, but that's all right. He still gives me the giggles.

You can see some of Dan Henderson's work here.
