Choices

US artist Jermaine Rogers has just released a new vinyl figure of a knife-weilding rabbit titled “Choices”.

“This 8 inch vinyl figure strikes an alert pose, wide-eyed and aware. Our little bunny must make an important choice…and he holds the instrument to carry out his decision. What bunny’s choice is and what the implications of his decision will be is for you to decide. ‘Choices’ (regular edition) figure is limited to 500 pieces worldwide.”

The Koala and I have quite a collection of rabbit shaped vinyl toys already, but I want this one so bad!

Monday Bunday returns: The Wild Rabbit

the-wild-rabbit04

The nostalgia of the road-side inn with pub and rooms upstairs has come a long, long way.

The Wild Rabbit in Kingham, Oxfordshire, UK doesn’t conjure up tired, old rooms where pungent travellers rest their weary heads (after drinking and eating too much in the pub downstairs). Far from it.

Built in 1950, The Wild Rabbit was renovated last year to a high standard. With a very nice restaurant and traditional village pub attached, guest are welcome to stay in one of their 12 very comfortable rooms. Their rooms have sweet names such as the Hare, Otter and Mouse rooms.

Monday Bunday: Hopping Hare

Badger beers had a brand-wide redesign by starting with their Hopping Hare beer. The result is fresh while still being very English countryside. The typography is very playful with strong illustrated elements.

This redesign was done by UK advertising agency Brand Opus.

Monday Bunday: Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale

wild-hare1

I’m quite fond of the branding for Shiner’s Wild Hare Pale Ale. The copy was clearly written by advanced lagomorph experts.

Lepus texianus hopus aleicus

STYLE: Classic American Pale Ale  ABV: 5.5%  IBU: 32

A mature individual stands 9.5 inches tall and weighs 12.0001 ounces. Renowned for its assertive temperament and hoppy characteristics. It has a distinguished heritage, being the product of high alpha Bravo and U.S. Golding hops, as well as two-row barley malt with a blend of Munich and caramel malts. Note the Wild Hare’s handsome red pelt and distinctive neck band, which helps distinguish it from others out in the wild. The beer enthusiast is its only known predator.
