2011 Hartford Art School Alumni Juried Exhibition Catalog
I'm placing a few more character studies / model sheets that I used as part of the Graduation series. Seeing that one of the illustrations in the series, Graduation Celebration, is up in the alumni show, I thought it fitting to include a few more sketches that contributed to the development of both the characters and the story.
The rabbit was a fun character to design. He is one of three teachers (the owl and the turtle are the other two), that the child dreams up. While both scholarly and wise, he also has a good sense of humor and enjoys having a little fun.
