“The Robbed Rabbit” by Millie Ho.
Can you guess what the rabbit lost?
Erik, you’re still alive!
Haha, yeah I am. My mind is quiet though. Not a bad thing. I go through phases, sometimes things brew deep down inside for a long time. And then I’ll re-emerge like a giant, sharply-dressed butterfly. But for now, learning / enjoying things / season 3 of Archer.
I still read your blog though. Terribly gifted. Maybe I’m self-conscious? Your art is bigger than mine. When I draw everything looks like a car chase or fake Arabic for some reason (some kind of subconscious popcorn?).
Oh, draw horses!
Considering the strange muumuu she’s wearing, I have no doubt.
the will to live?
Morbid, but I can see why you’d think that.
not to go all biblical here,
but i came across a bible passage the other day in a sun ra biography
that makes me hungry for the circus
and here it is reappearing in what appears to be a skull set free.
“there is a sin for which there is no death.”
that lucky rabbit maybe has no more fear of death
and sin can stand for synchronized infinitely to the now.
I like your interpretation, Steve. A hoverskull, above lucky rabbit feet.
and Millie… i like the idea of a hover skull.
it ignites a memory of hearing that earth
may be loosely attached to a hanger called nothing.
I think it lost its dignity. Or, maybe the answer to the connect the dots puzzle on its shirt. Then again it could be the petals from the flower stem its holding. Finally, it could be the pail of water it needs to douse the fire raging on its head. Oh, it just hit me, if it’s the rabbit from the movie, Harvey, he could be missing Mr. Elwood P. Dowd.
Top hat and a muumuu? Coming to a runway near you.
The button on her overalls…?
It does look like someone tried (unsuccessfully) to sew them on!
The rabbit (sometimes pronounced wabbit) lost its lucky foot…or its job, house and savings…if it’s a U.S. wabbit…ooorrr possibly an ear. But how did it loose the ear. The ear got caught in the door of a cab. The driver didn’t notice and just drove away. If this was a detective story, we could name it “The Case of the Errant Ear.” No!?
Sounds like a compelling story, Thomas. There will be more, and they will also have alphabetical alliterations, like Sue Grafton’s detective novels.
you are fantastic
Hi Millie, this is very evocative and full of emotion! I really like it. Can she sew her tail back on?
It’s soul?… through the crown chakra…
It is very great and she is likely to hold various attractive tales.
Wax. Or maybe she lost her freedom to the Rabbit King in my most recent illustration. But I like the term “lost wax” so I’m going with that. (and it has nothing to do with ears)
The drawing is fabulous, by the way. Few people can pull off this kind of illustration (with the skulls and such) without coming off as juvenile. Good job.
Thank you, Gabriel. “Lost wax” can be moulded into a variety of things. I’m glad you like the drawing. Looking forward to your new work!
This incident of the stolen tail was clearly only the latest insult suffered by this poor rabbit, as evidenced by the scale of her violent thoughts.
You are most perceptive, good sir. I am sure the rabbit will benefit from more such psychoanalysis.
If it was a Welsh Rabbit it could have lost a dream.
Yes. I think perhaps the rabbit has lost its mind.
I love that. (Reminds me of Alice). I guess rabbit lost his mind because time was running to fast
