Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




I drew these disgustingly cute rabbits in November 1996 for an animated commercial for France. Naturally they wanted them to look like Beatrix Potter's but placed in modern settings (Modern kitchens). The usual advertising bullshit. On spite of all my efforts the film never happened.
Diseñe estos repugnantes conejos para un comercial Frances en 1996. Los querian en el estilo de Beatrix Potter, la ilustradora y escritora Inglesa. Eran para vender cocinas. El comercial nunca se materializó y yo habia trabajado como un burro.

Good.

They may be horribly cute, but they are authentic, I think.

Meu marido é publicitário e sempre diz que os melhores trabalhos de "artes finais" são os que não são aceitos pelos clientes.

Belo trabalho!

I say the world needs more disgusting cuteness. These drawings are delightful.
So boo to macho cynicism.

for the reason they have, thea are perfect. But elliot is right, they are so f****** cute, my grandma would die for them.
Nevertheless a solid artwork.

Thanks, Jörn. The only reason I hanged them here was because I liked the way they were drawn. Nowadays I would find impossible the get so enthusiastic about illustrating for advertising. I've learned to hate it with great passion!!
