Story of a crazy little rabbit.

Is it just me, or Gandalf looks really grumpy here? Mix of despair and anger I’d say… just like when you can’t find your car keys, and you know you had them in your hands few hours ago. Now you’re late to an important thing somewhere… and by now you have given up on finding the keys…
But still, this Illustration is cool!

I am a big admirer of Jed Henry’s art and all that he has done to sustain and spread the craft of traditional Japanese woodblock printing. I have been meaning to contact him about doing a print for our show for a while now, and also just to tell him how much I love his work. So I am overjoyed that he chose Avatar as the subject for one of his wonderful reinterpretations, the third beautiful image here. So cool! Thanks, Jed! I hope we connect soon.
