If you happen to be one of the naysayers insisting that Lego can’t be turned into art, we have a few picks to prove you wrong.

Check them out below and let us know what you think! Continue reading
Blackjack and bunnies — two of our favorite things here at From Hop To Pop — double down in an excellent new t-shirt design spun around a literal and punny approximation of the humble jack rabbit. Get it for $20 bones, hardly a budget buster (sorry, couldn’t resist…), at Threadless.
Those with astute powers of observation might recall that we featured a gaggle of bunny-themed tees in this very space last year. Got one of your own to share? Post it in the comments below!
Today in rabbit-themed art: “Dancing Hares“, a bronze sculpture depicting three oversized bunnies busting a move and doing their best take on ’80s dance craze, the Roger Rabbit. Designed by Sophie Ryder, an artist based in London, the piece is currently installed at a public park in Dublin, Ohio.
From the artist’s statement:
Sophie Ryder lives in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside where hares are a native and prolific species measuring 24″ when sitting with ears upright. She became enthralled with the hares annual spring courtship — standing erect and “boxing” each other for mates and territory; hence the phrase: “Mad as a March Hare.”
When trying to avoid cliches and some of the more apparent musical themes, artists tend to change their style and lyrical approach. They find new ways to express themselves or entirely new topics to delve into through their music.
Believe it or not, rabbits are occasionally included among off-the-beaten-track topics, dating back to the early days the 20th century. Sometimes they serve as metaphors (cryptic or otherwise), sometimes they’re specifically about rabbits, but one thing’s for certain – they’re bunny songs. So join us as we rundown of 10 greatest rabbit songs of all time.
10. Florence & The Machine – ‘Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)’
We’ll kick it off with younger representatives of the music scene – Florence & The Machine and their Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) tune. Indie rockers released the track as a single in June 2009, scoring No. 12 spot on the UK Singles Chart.

In honor of our favorite holiday, Easter, we’ve cobbled together a supercut of our favorite movie bunnies and embedded it below.
The edit includes classic selections from Bambi, Harvey, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, but is leavened with a selection of lesser-known, and carefully vetted, dark horse entries, showing the versatility of our rabbits friends; they’re more than just inspiration for our cute slippers.
Congrats to Kai Peter, the winner of our contest! He correctly identified all of the movies in sequence and they are now listed below the jump!
