New year picknick in the park (a la Georges Seurat)

Georges Seurat is a master of pointillism - a painting technique where patterns of small dots are used to form an image.

We just loved both Seurat's painting and his style. But when Alex started drawing only than we realized, it is a lot of dots and 80x50 cm canvas might have not been the best choice :)

Anyway after almost 6 months of coming and going it is finally ready:

Oregon dunes

We got a little bit lost in oregon dunes (had to climb one of them to get unstuck)

On our way we found a couple of fresh traces which appear to be bear like:



We are now just 150 mi. away from San Francisco. This day was all about Redwoods and whales.

Paradoxes

This week would be a paradox week at fellowrabbit.com


We are going to explore a Robert Boyle's self-flowing flask, making a real life model and trying it out over the weekend (presumably works best when filled with beer, some say it is a waste of beer thought).

Other plans are to publish a report about our Fellow Rabbit carnival party - Hasenmontag and a report about an ancient Greek fellow rabbit vase found in rubbish piles on my table, few months ago :)

We also got a new painting ongoing, I would not disclose the style yet, but so far it is my favorite.

And once we get through the burnout and trip preparation we will renew our comics project (we still have a dozen of good strips which have not seen a light of adobe illustrator yet).

Stay tuned.

Strip of the day, 28.02.2011, Portfolio

Portfolio is important to every artist, and according to Seth Godin and his new book Linchpin, we all are up to be an artist (a person who does her/his work as it is an art) in order to succeed in this world. 

So do your art, be a linchpin, but never forget to keep a good portfolio as a matter of self respect and a token of success:

fellowrabbit goes to america

FellowRabbit goes to America

This May we are going to USA, and we are having a crazy idea of making some citizen interviews with folks in states, so we, by all means, europeans in mind can learn what people there have in mind.

We have defined 2 main areas of interest:
1. Everyday life - what are the most exciting things in life?, what bothers the most?: e.g. job, health insurance, criminal, guns, supermarkets, american cars, tv, movies, gadgets etc

2. Internal politics - republican vs democrats, rich vs poor, politician vs people, obama, palin, jon stewart vs glenn beck etc

3. USA and the world - how people in us see the world, how the world sees usa, iraq, afganistan, al-qaeda, us military, wikileaks, cablegate, export of democracy etc

We will try to make several interviews including with people in silicon valley, utah, nevada, boston, new york and crazy folks we meet in yellowstone national park.

If you have any ideas for questions or people we should interview (you will have to set up the interview) leave a comment here.

Strip of the day, 23.02.2011, True religion

"Religion is the opium of the people" Karl Marx

According to the history of mankind, religion is nothing else than a proto-state built around an idea of mighty and omnipotent god. And in our time even the most progressive religions are more an instrument of control and power rather education and unity, even if the religion is based around science and knowledge:



True religion:
1.
K: Free people, come and join us for the reading of the wikipedia in the temple of mighty photon

2.
A: Come to praise the god photon and the holy spirit of science & knowledge

3.
A: I count to 1, and if you #@*=ers do not go to our mess, I start to #@*=ing shoot

4. 
A: I love to see so many people to praise science and knowledge
K: Just like a real religion

Leaping white rabbits, a la Claude Monet

Claude Monet is one of the most beautiful painters we've seen. That is why it was both a challenge and a great pleasure to follow his works. Look what we got an the result:

Strip of the day, 22.02.2011, Politics

It's all about politics:
1. democracy is better than dictatorship
2. elections are always good (don't let anyone fool you with their special way)

But even elections let sometimes dirty foam float on top of the society:



PS: We are with people of Libya, actually we think civilized world (meaning at least europe and us) should intervene - maybe even a military strike against Gaddafi, and finish the bastard rather sooner then later.

PS2: We are big fans of direct democracy and we think there will be a golden age of the civilization when it will come back to the roots and turn to direct democracy. And maybe web 3.0 will help up do that.

Strip of the day, 20.02.2011, ADD treatment

For those who are struggling with ADD (attention deficit disorder), simply put you, who surfs the internet while at work :), do not give up, if you have a high IQ chances are you are a very creative person.

Robber rabbits are struggling with ADD people too, as it seems most of the people around them are in for an ADD treatment, trying to concentrate on one thing at a time and not noticing anything around. This had to be stopped at all cost.

While helping other creatures to get rid of their ADD, Robbers have built the very first temple of Photon:



Dialogs:

Strip of the day, 14.02.2011, Valentine's day quiz - doggy style

Although many people suggest that Valentine's day is just a load of marketing crap, and robber rabbits are quite sinister about it too (at least by the nature of their job) it is nevertheless a good day to ask yourself and your loved ones the fundamental question of love:



PS: we wish you spend this day as any other day of your life with people you love or at least like.

Doggy style, dialogs:
1.
A: Why do you think they call it doggy style?
B: Probably they could not choose from all the words we have for this style

2.
A: Which would you choose?
K: Probably @#*= R Nr. 15
A: Really?! I would say @#*= R Nr. 34

3.
No clear:

- That's why they call it doggy style
- Yeah

Strip of the day, 12.02.2011, Dreaming of a better life

Sometimes we are pinned down by the routine, we have to go to work because we have a family to support, we have to work for a bank rather building super cars or that laser gun for the army because it is comfy and safe. But sometimes we have dreams what our life could be if we had the guts to pull it off.

The robber family certainly have the guts to pull anything (it seems), but do they have a strength to make their dreams come true:

Strip of the day, 09.02.2011, the last ip

Internet faces a huge problem, it is running out of ipv4 addresses, at the beginning of this week the last free RIR section had been allocated.

Soon people will start getting problems, it would be more difficult to reconnect to your provider with a dsl modem or get connected to the mobile internet as overcrowded provider will run out of ip pools they are using now. Chaos, revolution, people getting on the street, work shortages, anything can happen at that point.

This is how a rabbit robber family could handle the last ip situation:

illuminated manuscript of a children story "a fox and a hare"

This week we present to you an illuminated manuscript of the Russian children story: "a fox and a hare", which can also be found under the name "Hare's hut". A picture consists of four sections, by the chapters of the story and should serve as a background of one of the bus stops in the city of Perm.

But first thing first, let's star with a story: the drama starts with a robber baron fox, who's snow hut melted in the spring and let him think it was a good idea to move to an apartment owned by a hare (maybe not as nice as the "ice hotel", but warm and dry). In a unequal battle a hare had to flee saving what's left of his skin. The whole summer he was looking for a help of higher authority - mighty and resourceful wolf and bear, but none of them dared to attack a fox, fearing kamikaze style retaliation. And when a pour hare was getting ready to join his ancestors, a hero (a cock, probably helping him out of class hate for royalty and foxes) comes by and saves the day.
