The Zodiac Smackdown

My buddy Lonny Unitus and I printed a little something over the weekend.

The design is from 2004 and we finally got around to printing it over the past weekend (3 years later). Anyway, the idea was born from a Squad 19 project called the Zodiac Smackdown. Basically an artist/designer would do half the design of a zodiac animal of their choosing, then pass it along to another artist/designer to FIGHT! The result in this case is a warm and fuzzy bunny fighting a magestic tiger.

Here's some of the printing process from our Sunday morning fun time extravaganza:
