Since Jacob was received so well, here's the next one in my series of portraits. I used to do a lot of illustration and wanted to do comics, so I have a lot of characters kicking around in my head, I'm thinking of doing a portrait for each, and then making quilted frames for them and joining them together into a wall hanging or quilt.

So here's Hazel the Jackalope Farmer and baby Jack.

Oh, that's gorgeous! And she has such a sweet look on her face, too. Out of curiosity, what does she raise jackalopes for? Release into the wild, pets, food?

The one she has is a baby, they get very, very big, about the size of a small elephant, and people ride them. They're the main source of transport across the Great Grass Sea. I don't think she'd dream of eating them!

It's hard to say, I work on them while I'm sitting at work--I finished this over 2 weeks, but I worked a little here, a little there. Maybe about 15 hours?  I know school has been whipping me into shape, that doesn't feel like that long anymore~
