Little Jack Rabbit and Uncle John Hare

There's a picture book series by a guy named David Cory titled Little Jack Rabbit and Uncle John Hare. It was written in 1922, when things were pretty and you could escape from bad things without too much trouble, though sometimes a sprinkle of something enchanting was necessary. I suppose this drawing could be called fan art.

Uncle John Hare begins a journey with Little Jack Rabbit in the magic auto.
I drew this last night in the dark. There was a little lamp beside me. Curry, our twenty pound calico, was sitting on my laptop next to me, and Blue, our clown dog, kept running upstairs to go to bed, and then running back down to see why we hadn't gone up there yet. Well, Jim wasn't home, so we just don't sleep then. Blue will figure it out. She's no dummy, but she thinks very differently than the rest of us.
