FANTASTIC!

Love the big glooming atmosphere it has, interesting monstrous interpretation of the Black Rabbit of death :D This one seems much more threatening and menacing than the depiction in the movie :) Love the use of water color and ink washes, it really brings out that story-book quality that it origined from. The other hollow-ghost rabbits in the background helps to draw emphasis on the dominance the Black Rabbit has, besides being the largest character in the picture.

5/5, Amazing!

 But the Thousand refers to the enemies of rabbits... doesn't it?

 Anyway, great painting, Almost the same as I imagined him :)

It's a great book about this group of rabbit that leave their home when one of them has premonitions of danger and so it's about them trying to make a new home and community. I read it in school at some point but I've read it several more times after that.

Read book before watching the movie! Don't watch the movie with children, no matter how cute it looks on the cover!!!
I love the book and the movie, but they get a bad rap due to the whole "violent onscreen deaths but fluffy bunnies on cover" thing.

I remember it well. Jesus. I don't what the rating is on that thing, but it should be higher. If it was people in it, it'd be an 18.

And now of course there are rabbits running around outside my window. Mocking me.
