"Dead Rabbit" - One of the "Being a Kid" Series
The "Dead Rabbit" print is one of nearly 100 vignettes drawn from the boyhood experiences of the artist, David Gildersleeve. This book is based on "actual" events. Click image to enlarge.
This illustration portrays the kid’s hapless little sister. This time, she’s not impressed when our hero wants to give her a close-up view of the remains of a rabbit he found that has seen better days. And, of course, being chased by the carcass on a stick just makes things worse.
How do little boys think of doing such things? And why do little sisters seem to take the brunt of such antics? And why do dead animals always have “X’s for eyes?
Could I have done such dastardly deeds when I was a kid? Naahh!
This print (11" x 17") is foam-core backed and suitable for framing and is perfect for hanging in a boy's room. What boy wouldn't get a chuckle from this look at one of the activities a boy thinks of doing when growing up. I can't help but think: "I was that boy!"
A walk down memory lane!
