I have been working with Audrey Derell, an amazing graphic designer, to create a portrait of one of my creatures. Audrey orchestrated this image called "Oliaris Caught in the Light."
(What you are seeing is a photograph of a rabbit that has tripped a trigger on a night-vision infrared broad spectrum camera. Used mainly for security, I was able to 'borrow' one of these gadgets and set it up in a secret location...hoping to capture the elusive Oliaris rabbit. In the photo, it appears that he is sitting in a wooded area.)
This image is being released as a limited edition digital print in conjunction with a fundraiser for arts in public schools in Santa Fe.

Alleni Taking Aim
25" x 18" x 9"
Historically, it seems like rabbits have been portraid as meek, passive creatures, something afraid of human contact...but not in New Mexico. The large jack rabbits that I see around Santa Fe are nothing but fast, sleek, intelligent and sometimes scary. I often stumble on them while hiking, some are brown and white, some black and white.
I have started thinking of them as tricksters, especially when it comes to interacting with humans. Once my back is turned, I figure they can do just about anything to us!
Alleni, the about rabbit, has a large, heavy wooden croquet ball. He does not seem timid as he looks around for a target.
