I lost a friend yesterday.
He was the guy who inspired my "Bunny Hops Beer" painting, based off a silly night at a bar in Atlanta with him. I probably wouldn't have my job with Mad Rabbit Distillery if it wasn't for that Bunny Hops Beer painting - it inspired them to make their whole series of labels based off of it.
I would sneak into Rick's office whenever I was at Greg's work place and draw the cutest bunny I could muster in dry erase marker on his white board (and see how long it would take for him to notice it... he'd always instantly notice). I was told he'd preserve the bunny doodle for as long as possible, until I would eventually replace it with a new one.
I drew one last bunny for him after I heard the news that he was gone.
I'm really going to miss him.
Quote is from Watership Down.
I am sorry you lost a good friend
my sincerest condolences
this is an awesome and endearing tribute (and watership down is hella)
I'm sorry to hear about your loss.
Nice work and I'm sorry for your loss. Have a beer for me at BuckHead.
I don't know you well, but I just wanted to say that he will always be in your heart. And take your time with grieving, don't let anyone make you feel like you have to rush that process. I've had people try to do that to me, and let me tell you, it's always best to take things in your own time. <3 Never let anyone make you feel guilty for that.
He will always be with you, in spirit and in your heart. Eventually, the pain and sorrow you are feeling will ebb and you will remember the fond memories of him rather than the current sorrow. <3 it will take time, but you will get to that point.
I know he would have loved this piece you made for him. It's beautifully done.
