Stripejack Forest by ursulav Stripejack Forest by ursulav
9 x 11.5, mixed media on paper sealed to paperboard composite...schtuff.

The funny thing is that I actually may have to do a digital take on this because I couldn’t get the textural effect I wanted, and the thing in my head was much creepier and weirder and the rabbit design was actually rather more deformed, but somewhere in the course of the painting it became rounder and less freaky and the whole thing became rather less alarming and more straightforwardly cute.

Some people try to do cute and it gets creepy. (ANNE GEDDES, I AM LOOKING IN YOUR DIRECTION) I try to do creepy and it goes cute. We all have our crosses to bear, I suppose…

Oh My ♥ :D
I love the bunny expression, and I like very much the trees or roots, the stripes on them add a very good volume.

It DOES look cute. I could imagine a lot of possible stories behind it.
I like the way you can mingle the cute with the strange. It's delightfully over the top but in a pleasant way.

I've been following your art on here for years (though i rarely comment). I wanted to say, though, that I always enjoy reading your little stories about your creatures. You have such a vivid, wonderful imagination.
