It seems that recently a large proportion of my facebook friends has obtained bunnies. (By recentely I mean probably over a year in some cases). So every day I seem to be bombarded with pictures like these:

And I am surely not complaining about this, it's like being bombarded with cat pictures only SLIGHTLY different. I remember in the olden days when I was 5 my granny used to have TONS of bunnies (before they became so last year and she moved on to guinea pigs). I remember of being terrified I will get bitten (but never was). But that is not only bunny related memory for me. Mostly it makes me think of this picture:
Albrecht Dürer is one of my drawing heroes. I think my soft spot are the superdetailed drawings and this was one of more important ones that influenced what I am doing now. I am not alone in being influenced by this image though, as so was Jürgen Goertz:
This is a scupture which sits outside Albrecht Dürer's house in good old Nürnberg. Which I went to some 10 years ago (I think it was exactly that last November). And it was quite amazing.
So here is my bunny story for today. Now I am going to draw some!
