The Naughty Rabbit: Art for the curiously determined



Naughty!” I whispered, picking a porcelain chickadee wing off the floor while my rabbit Monty sat on the dresser where the bird last sat.

Naughty!” I muttered as my sister and I slowly realized Monty had retrieved the now half-eaten granny smith from the fruit bowl in the corner of the marble countertops.

“How are you still this Naughty?” I exclaimed as I set his three-legged tush safely back on the floor from his newfound perch atop a bag of hay atop a basket atop his cage.

I can’t think of a single word I used more when referring to my bunny. The Naughty Rabbit figurines began simply as a way to pay for Monty’s amputation surgery but have in a way become representations of his ability to be or do anything he wanted. Monty never let being a rabbit or having three legs keep him from what he set his mind to. He taught me not to take things for granted and that with enough grit, one can leap any obstacle.

Monty’s antics often made me think of phrases like “I aim to misbehave” from the resolute Malcolm Reynolds in the movie Serenity and the much quoted “Well behaved women seldom make history.” Both these statements hint at naughtiness actually being a virtue. After all, when you really break it down, it comes from a place of both curiosity and determination, both of which are pretty damn good qualities in my book. Monty’s naughtiness was really just an unquenchable inquisitiveness powered by a buttload of tenacity. To me, that means even someone small can make a big difference if they’re eager to learn and they stay determined. I want my art to give people glee and incite in them a little of that naughty spirit.

Patreon gives me a chance to have a stronger personal connection with my fans and gives you a voice in my future projects. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at my sculpture and illustration as well as exclusive access to some of my work. With your pledge, I will expand the naughty rabbits beyond the figurine and create more engaging art while traveling to new places to bring and spread the naughty spirit.



Here’s our tale of love and determination:

There once was a naughty gray rabbit
who had a great many bad habits.
An adventure one day
left this bun in dismay,
for a broken back leg’s problematic.

Good thing Mom’s a rabbit fanatic
with a flair for the melodramatic.
To the vet they both went.
All her money she spent,
to avoid something much more traumatic.

With three legs he’s quite asymptomatic
and he’s still very much charismatic.
Always scarfs down his food
that he barely has chewed,
But his hops are mismatched and sporadic.

Goals
$9 of $500 per month
A million naughty rabbit ideas are hopping around in my brain right now! Unfortunately I'm always taking the chance that a bunny may be flop and spend more time making dustbunny friends than helping me cover studio costs. With your help I can take more leaps of faith on obscure characters and designs and expand my empire of naughties even more!
