Labbit season - usagiguy
Labbit season

I get about three requests a month to donate art for some cause, charity or organization. I can't accommodate everyone, but one I really wanted to do was this "Labbit" for the Japanese American National Museum. A number of artists were given a blank "labbit" (it is year of the rabbit, after all), and we could design it any way we chose. I, of course, did an Usagi labbit. The pieces will will exhibited at the museum in LA this summer, then sold off.

This was painted with spray paint and acrylics. The swords were taken from the last TMNT UY figure which came with blades and scabbards, so the swords can be unsheathed. The swords also had to be painted, by the way.

I'm looking forward to this exhibit, and to see what other artists did.

This is remarkable, not to mention rather adorable. :)

I wish I were planning to visit LA so I could visit the exhibit and see everyone's contributions. I'm sure some of them will be a real hoot!

Goodness this is precious! For a second I thought this was another merchandize for Usagi and got all giddy. Just a bit disappointed I can't get my hands on one of these cuties. Good job on making use of materials, what with the TMNT swrods and all.

It looks like you had tons of fun with this 8>

Wonderful work, Sensei! I'll be sure to pay the museum a visit this summer to see it in person. ^_^
