Finishing university and rabbits

  Goodness, my time at university is almost over and while I try and work out what to do with myself next I figure the best thing to do is carry on making bright/cute pictures. It's weird to think that about 4 years ago I had no idea what I wanted to do, my childhood dreams of being an artist felt very distant and I held some vague notion that I should do something science related instead. Then, almost on a whim one day I thought 'I like drawing, maybe illustration is a thing I could do' and shyly mentioned this to a couple of people to gauge their response because to me it felt a little ridiculous. I'd slowly grown out of drawing and painting in my spare time, although never completely, and the closest art related subject I'd done at school in years was a-level graphics. I did know, however, that it was the only thing I was enthusiastic about doing and so went for it. Throughout the course my enthusiasm for illustration has only grown and now I can't see myself doing anything else. 
  I can't predict how successful I'll be as an illustrator, but I'm determined to keep on moving forward doing what makes me happy regardless.
 
  Anyway, I think the point I'm making is here's a picture of some rabbits -
