The illusion of music by Culpeo-Fox The illusion of music by Culpeo-Fox
And thus, Mikado began to play a song - a fine little song about a quick rabbit called "Jumping Jack" - with his serpent flute. And as the melody left the wooden instrument, it slowly but surely took the shape of a rabbit.

So Jacky jumped,
he jumped and jumped,
higher and higher,
Like a Jumping Jack



"Music, stupid one! It is music. Did you never listened to it that way?"
~

randomly drew it at work. I was in the mood for conceptual Mikado-based stuff again.

Mikado, Xipe (c) Culpeo Fox

Ahh, people asking me if this is from Narnia makes me feel old.

I wish to ask if you got the rabbit idea from "Watership Down" ?

Ah. Music does so much. Brings one up, puts one down, soothes or angers.

I absolutely adore this one. One of my favorites from you, I think. I am always amazed at how easy you make it appear to place a feral fox character in an unnatural pose. It astounds me, and it looks fantastic! I love the element of the hare here as well, it reminds me of one of my favorite books, Watership Down. I don't know if you've read that or not, but I highly recommend it, as that little rabbit spirit looks like those in the prelude to the film.

Anyhow, fantastic work yet again. I'm seriously considering buying a print of this little gem.
