Illustration Friday on a Monday

I'm a bit early on my Illustration Friday challenge this week. The topic is Talisman. The caption is:

Muffy Bunny found having four feet to be very lucky.

Illustrating "talisman" didn't inspire me--I'm not a talisman kind of person at all. But I did get to thinking about rabbit feet and that led to this creation which features one of my all time favourite colour combinations--what I like to call Howard Johnsons. If you remember your 1970s-ish cultural pop history you will remember that the chain featured orange and a sort of turquise blue--a colour combo which has had a profound and lasting effect on me....just as the sorbet I ate at HJ on rare occassions when we were traveling. These two colours make me happy and that certainly is something quite lucky.

That bunny's colors definitely do represent Ho Jo's! :) Our local HoJo still has that same combo infact!
