Blake Jones is a Chicago based artist that uses a distinct graphic style to illustrate the complex worlds of non-human actors. Through his signature, big eared, mascot we see snapshots of the great story of life. Each brightly coloured artwork depicts a moment in time, dedicated to a feeling or lesson experienced through this surrogate animal. Often in reminiscing on the perceived simplicity of childhood does Jones show us that life is actually anything but simple.
How can this adorable character exhibit the gamut of emotion, flowing from anger to joy with all of the unnamable feelings in between? His work is not only pure and cute, but it is also wonderfully rich with contemplation on the passage of time and the depth of our sentimental bucket. Blake Jones' unassuming character can be a reminder that if this young bunny has the simultaneous capacity for every feeling imaginable, then so do you. Blake’s work has been exhibited in multiple mediums and forms such as print, paintings, gallery exhibitions, sculptures, and murals.
Framing: We recommend displaying a bus panel floating in a frame (frame not included)
Post and Packaging:
Popcorn bidding: If a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional five minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.
