Illustration Fri: Electricity

'Lightning in a Bottle'

I based this sketch off the old phrase 'to catch lightning in a bottle' (or the other version, 'To keep lightning in a bottle'). May we all succeed at the extremely difficult!

HI everyone!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!

The bunny was great fun to work on (he makes me smile too =)
I figured he was getting a little static from holding the bottle (he's ecstatic he caught the lightning! )
