:silverweed3 Hallo, my dear friends. I was planning to make this Forum much sooner, yet things came up so I do apologize of this.
Anyway, I like to share with the community some of you may already know or not yet is worth sharing about either way.
Aldo Galli is an Italian Artist (Painter and Illustrator) who had been given permission by Richard Adams to Illustrate his story of Watership Down.
His Watership Down Collection is amazing at interpreting the story and I highly Advise you to check out the website below.
Hope you enjoy and learn more Watership Down my dear Friends.

It is .... Absolutely beautiful !.
A simple and humble super market employee drawing masterpieces from his favorite book Watership Down. It is so touching that I feel like crying ..
He also visited the real or possible Watership Down, so he could paint those wonders .... It's so beautiful.    :blackberry4

I am very happy for Aldo Galli, he is a great person, he even met Richard Adam and his wife. Which by the way, I hope I live long enough to see the latest WSD movie in CGI.

I love you Vesper, thank you very much for this information. I am terrible looking for these things, THANKS! *Big hug*      :buttercup

I particularly liked this one:

As ever great to see some more art for WSD! Fun that he was able to create so many detailed pictures for the story, and some stand out more than others, such as 'Fear in the Dark'. Also great that he got to meet Richard himself! :)
Here lies a signature that has little point.
