Absinthe by leighyoung Absinthe by leighyoung
Boy, I never thought I'd see this one finished. I've seen it done in my head for weeks now I was afraid I wouldn't get it done in real like, that I'd lose interest in it. But it's done now!

I give total credit to for the text. I knew I wanted her to be drinking absinthe, and he came up with the little tag line for me. I did a bit of research on it and discovered that it is an hallucinant so the bunnies visiting a goth chick all came together.

Again, excuse the watermark but I gotta do what I gotta do.

This one will be a print as soon as I find time and patience to do all the sizing and saving.

Okay, this is awesome, but I feel compelled to correct you(please forgive me).

Absinthe is not a hallucinogen like people claim it is.  It doesn't contain any hallucinogens, it is most certainly not like LSD, or THC, the stories originate from improper consumption.  All absinthe is 90 proof(45% alcohol by volume) or higher, which is higher than most whiskey brands, so the hallucinogenic properties come from the alcohol when drunk straight, not some mysterious chemical in the absinthe.  That's why you're supposed to water it down with three parts water for each part absinthe, and sweeten with a sugar cube, because it is quite bitter. 

That said, I do get, and appreciate the joke.  A goth seeing something pink and fluffy, and is massively confused.

Great job on her expression, and the different shades of blue are well crafted and toned. The pink bunnies are hilarious, too. :XD:
Mmmm. Absinthe. My favourite way to get inebriated. I'm definitely adding this print to my wishlist. You've got a definite knack for capturing priceless facial expressions.
the bunnies are priceless!
The green fairy has come again! Good lord.
Are those chocolate chip cookies? They look very chunky; I thought they were berries on biscuits or something at first ^^' Hey, it's Absinthe, after all. I'm going all out with my imagination here. :D
As usual, the girl is positively lovely! Oh, and that lamp is completely awesome (I wish that I had one like it!)
