Happy Year of the Rabbit! All right, it officially started, what, two weeks ago? (I meant to post last week, really I did - but I got snowed under with a flurry of work stuff. Totally valid excuse.) Well, anyway. In honor of the occasion, I've dug up a huge horde of bunny sketches - these cover a range of years, I'm not even sure of the dates, I just went digging through archived scans grabbing bunnies right and left. Most of these were sketched in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden - some are your regular garden-variety average brown bunnies, but I'm pretty sure the fancy varieties were abandoned tame bunnies.
Heads up - Bunny Mob, INCOMING!
And of course there were Lunar New Year festivities! I didn't catch many, but I rambled around Chinatown one weekend looking for lions. I didn't find nearly as many as some years (I think they might have been more active on Thursday, that's when the new year officially started,) but I spotted a few. So, here's the obligatory lion dance photos (such as they are...)

(Spotted this guy on one of my walks upstate ages ago, really fat critter. Caught a little bit of him before he disappeared into his burrow.)
It's almost the Year of the Rabbit! There will be rabbits here shortly. Lots of rabbits. Stay tuned!
