In early 2018 Leeds Inspired, a what's on guide for events in Leeds, commissioned myself and 11 other artists to produce an illustration based on the tradition of saying 'White Rabbits' on the first of the months for good luck.
Each artist was allocated a month. I was allocated August. The illustrations were used on social media by Leeds Inspired to wish followers good luck and attract attention to their service. The illustrations will be printed in a calendar in 2019.
I associated August in Leeds with Leeds Festival, so I create an illustration with white rabbits getting merry on carrot juice and dancing at a musical festival. I wanted to do something cheerful and silly. I requested a summer month, as this suits my style.
