Sacrifice



"And while the Boy was asleep, dreaming of the seaside, the little Rabbit lay among the old picture-books in the corner behind the fowl-house, and he felt very lonely." Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

This week's Illustration Friday topic brought to mind the story of a toy rabbit's quest to be Real...there's a happy ending, but only after a sacrifice. Below is another verrsion, but the rabbit may look a little too bitter.

Good idea. the top one is hard to interpret though as he looks like he could be real. Maybe some stitches or something would help
