 a hare’s point of view…
“Give The Rifle To The Hare,” for Keith Newstead

For the cover image of Keith’s box I was inspired by a scene from a childhood storybook called “Struwwelpeter” - a book full of now legendary cautionary tales that completely fascinated me as a child.  I’m not sure if Keith also grew up with this book, but I feel he would like the way it always puts the shoe on the other foot so to speak, like what I painted for Keith where a hare steals a rifle from a sleeping hunter and follows him around shooting until the hunter falls in a well (“The Story Of The Man That Went Out Shooting”).

The outside...
and looking inside.
The way the scroll starts...
and ends.
