Brian created his artwork using recycled cardboard, plywood, paper and glue, acrylic automotive paint. He says that "2011 is the year of the metal rabbit. Metal rabbits are known to be resourceful and ambitious. It is my hope that the "Golden Rabbit of Ambition" brings great fortune to those driven to success in the New Year."
