Watership Down


A few years back, I went to the Into the Woods design conference just outside of Seattle. One of the presenters was an artist named Rama Hughes. He and his wife, Christine, are both so very talented. I kept in contact with them and was recently asked to help Rama out with a project. He teaches a group of kids art and has asked different people to be artistic penpals with his students. This papercut is for a girl who I've heard enjoys drawing pictures of rabbits. I hope she likes it.

What a great idea! And how lucky this little rabbit-loving student is to have a pen=pal like you! Jealous!

Thanks you guys! I was researching rabbits today and discovered that a baby rabbit is also called a kit and that a group of baby rabbits is a kindle. I should have titled it Kindle.

Beautiful!!
I really love your work, it reminds me of the Jan Pienkowski illustrations that I loved as a child - have you seen his stuff?

This is lovely! I loved Watership Down so much that I named my dog Fiver! I've been hoping that they would update the cover art to bring that book more fans. Your artwork would make a gorgeous cover!
