why there’s a rabbit on the moon – part 9

Chang'e ponders

hmmm...

Despite the efforts and courage of Chang’e,  Houyi was becoming more and more despotic. The people (and his wife) thought secretly, “well, at least no one lives forever, and someday this reign of terror will be over.” Houyi, however, had other plans!

…and yes, in case you’re wondering because of the change in clothing, this is Chang’e – maybe she likes to meditate in something more comfortable – maybe I just decided that it was prettier… we’ll call it artist’s licence!

  1. The ghostly rabbit is awesome! Or is that the image in her mind as she mediates?

    Hey Hilary! Haven’t checked out your site for a while. Looks like you’ve been busy. Wow, love the Chinese myth story. Haven’t heard this one for awhile. Yes, Chang’e and the moon. Love all your rabbits. The clothes are exquisite. Are you guys publishing this comic strip?

    • Hey Merlyn! Nice to hear from you and glad you like what I’ve been doing 🙂 … as far as publishing, thanks! I don’t know though – I would need to do more, maybe a series of myths or something to be enough to publish… something to think about!
