Robert's Snow: Bill Carman

Robert's Snow: For Cancer's Cure : Seven Impossible Things... has a full explanation, including all posts to date.

The auctions start in November and continue until December. Go here to look at the artwork, and to bid once the auction goes "live."

Please consider bidding on a snowflake, and letting other art lovers know about the auction and this opportunity to own a unique work of art.

And now, on to the featured artist of the day!

Bill Carman's snowflake is featured during the auction that runs December 3 to 7, 2007. It is called "Rabbit Warrior" by Bill Carman.

The little guy on the reverse says, "I want to be a rabbit warrior." Who doesn't? And there on the front, in all his glory and full armor: the rabbit warrior. What better testament to dreams and wishes?

From his website, Carman includes one of the best descriptions of college I've read: "kind of a harder high school." He got his MFA from Brigham Young University, currently teaches at Boise State University; and his artwork runs the gamut from art for Opera Idaho to the children's book, What's that Noise.

Bill's website includes many examples of his work; go, visit, and you'll find yourself lost in the pictures for hours. Holy Hannah, he can turn an Altoid tin into a work of art!

Here's a close up of the snowflake:

I remember this one from my browsing! Indeed, it is just about the most wonderfully memorable snowflake of them all...

Wow, what a great snowflake. One of the best I've seen. I'm gonna have to find What's That Noise, too. Thanks for this, Liz.

What '80s movie is it that refers to college as "high school with ashtrays"? I've always loved that.

I love this weirdly surreal Rabbit Warrior. The bee armor is hilarious!
