I've been working on block printing for a while and decided to go for something a little bigger than I had before, and with multiple blocks and colors.
I also wanted to do something where I could vary the main print a bit by having different add-ons. In this case, I have the rabbit as the main image, and the walkman can easily be exchanged for a cookie or a cross or a flower or whatever, and the text can be changed as well, making a totally different type of image.
I started out by carving a large (10") bunny in a different style than I am used to (usually, I do outlines, but this was filled). I carved some alphabet blocks too, in a typewriter font, and then decided to add to it by making a walkman-style image to stick in the bunny's hand, and some earphones for his rabbity ears. Here's the result:

I also used it as the basis for a zazzle design.

Not sure if anyone else will think it's as funny as I do, but just me thinking it's funny is a start, no?
