Bunnie Antoinette by suburbanbeatnik Bunnie Antoinette by suburbanbeatnik
So, technically I really shouldn't have this on my dA site, as this is in my portfolio. But... I decided to make an exception, as I knew you guys would really enjoy it. I did this last summer for a friend's gallery showing, and I sold it a few months ago. It features an adorably fluffy bunny version of Marie Antoinette proclaiming "Let them eat carrot cake!" Her enormous dress, inspired by French fashion plates from the 1770s, is garnished liberally with her favorite vegetable, and her little fan features rabbits frolicking in a pastoral Watteau-like setting. The medium is light acrylic washes, painted on watercolor paper, on which I had photocopied the original drawing.

Bunnie Antoinette by ~suburbanbeatnik is absolutely stunning! It's quite a clever twist on our traditional idea of Marie Antoinette. ( Suggested by CassandraJames and Featured by cooley )

She's dislexic. She hates to read, write and going to school. But she loves animals (when she grows up, she wanna to be a vet!), sports and games. Oh, and she's a great example of tomboy!!!

Hey, if you really like Marie Antoinette or any art concerning her or the movie, you might want to think about joining my group :iconmarieantoinettefans: :)

Oooh!! How lovely!! Have you a print of this, or even the original?

It's funny, I was reading the Sandman comics (Vol 9, "The Kindly Ones") by Neil Gaiman - one of the most brilliant men of his craft! - and two of the characters featured therein were a Marie Antoinette lookalike and her companion, an anthromorphic Rococo vampire-rabbit named Ruthevin (sp?). If it were possible, their daughter might just look like this! *giggles*

I adore your work, darling, and this is the perfect mix of whimsy and historical fancy. Brava!

Alas, the original has been sold years ago. But I do have prints on sale at my Cafepress store. [link] I also take commissions, if you're interested.

I read the Sandman 15 years ago-- I actually own the complete comic-- but it's somewhere in storage. It's pretty brilliant. I'd like to reread it someday... when my comics are out of storage, LOL!
