rabbity looking / うさぎらしいうさぎ

January 4, 2011

3 October 1988, Canada
Varying Hare: Small Canadian Mammals series
design: Peter Adam

There was a comment ( off-line ) on the previous post of Amami Rabbit – ‘it looks like a Rat!’…  All right – the length of the ears, isn’t it?  Here is a more authentically Rabbit looking one, but this is technically a Hare!

This is a definitive stamp, featuring a fluffy animal adopting its appearance to the Winter colour.  The surrounding pattern is ecovatively 80’s for me.

元旦の切手に「ねずみに見える。」というコメントが。えーと、耳の長さですね、つまり?それでは、次にウサギらしいウサギを。けど、これは野うさぎなのです、正しくは。

背景には雪景色に合わせて毛が抜け替わるふわふわした雰囲気が出ていますね。そして、この線描には懐かしい80’sな空気が。ホットドッグとかドーナツのイラストの背景に、わたしもこんな線を使った遠い記憶があります。
