“Hats” are Illustration Friday’s theme this week.

I watched “The Prestige” the other night, and felt, a little magic would be a fitting way to illustrate the hat theme. Perhaps, a little reverse prestidigitation might even be in order.

“The Prestige”, by the way, was a pretty good film. It was a dark, mysterious and suspenseful thriller, with great performances by Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. Michael Caine and Scarlett Johansson also added wonderfully deft support to the complex story. Although it was a tale of magic during Britain’s Victorian age, the film’s true theme unfolded as a very clever and effective study of obsession and it’s inevitable toll.

So, if you like period pieces, sleight of hand and a couple of magicians that are easy on the eyes, you might want to give “The Prestige” a look.

Speaking of magicians, as for all those bunnies out there, who have been pulled out of hats by their tender little bunny ears, here is your revenge, at long last!

    hee hee hee hee hee hee!!! great piece! i really liked the prestige, too…very smart and well told. you know, it’s as if your bunny doesn’t think it’s ENOUGH to pull a magician out of a hat…he’s got to do a little tricky ballet move…wow…bunnies. such SHOWBOATERS! “)

  4. You are right, the Prestige is a very interesting film. Your illustration is wonderful, and the expression on the rabbit’s face is priceless. You should feature him in some other illustrations. Maybe he could do a cooking show… or a news program… like the Bunnie Papers.

    I thought the Prestige was a fantastic movie also. The twists were mindblowing, huh? I love the expression on the bunny’s face.

    Absolutely superb!
    I can’t stop the following from coming to mind when I look at this:
    “Hey Rocky! Watch me pull a rabbit (magician) out of my hat.”
    “Nothing up my sleeve…presto!!”
    (Bullwinkle pulls a rhino out of the hat.)
    “Now here’s something we think you’ll really like…”
