A dead bunny

This is a reject illustration from my current project at college. There’s something not right about them. Sort of stiff and uncomfortable and a bit too functional.

Today I went to put the washing out and found a baby bunny dead on the edge of one of the flower beds. It is the bed that we have just netted to keep the rabbits out as they were munching all the new growth. So now it looks a bit like the baby bunny died of starvation trying to get into the plants. You could definitely make it look really bad on the front page of a tabloid. Actually I think the stoat might have got it. Unfortunately the netting can’t keep another predator away from the new growth…slugs! And why do they love hollyhocks so much?
