OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS!
We need are for an open source project for all rabbit rescues across
the globe to use. Details:
We are creating a coloring book with images of realistic rabbits doing
cute things, accompanied by simple messages about rabbit care that stay
with the child and the parent alike.
The coloring book will be printed out and handed out locally. Each
coloring page has credit for the artist right on it. There will be a
digital version that we will encourage anyone to download and print out
for their kids, and we will also encourage other rescues to print out
the coloring book and use to engage children and eduate them on rabbit
There will be no charge for getting or printing the book, everyone will
be doing it for free.
For artists If you participate you get :
- Full credit &
Your URL on each image
- Crazy exposure from
hundreds of coloring books printed
everywhere rabbit rescuers interact with children and want to use this
- Your URL on our
website + we'll promote you on our Facebook
- This is a charity
project, if you volunteer your "pay" is
the credit and exposure. If you are paid a commission or by Listia.com
credits, then that is your pay, but you also get the above. There are
some Listia artists already involved.
All of these images involve realistic or quasi-realistic rabbits. No
"Bugs Bunny" style rabbits please. Nothing more cartoony than Disney's
a rabbit with the words "Rabbits" above it and "are a big
responsibility" below it. The words are hollow to encourage kids to
color the words. Coloring the words will make them ask their parents
what the word "responsiblity" means. That's always a good thing.

that won't eat are sick. Sick rabbits go to a vet.
