The American Rabbit began as a painting by Stewart Moskowitz which became a popular poster. Several years later, this children's story was published as part of a set of four books. It was written by Stewart and describes the origin of the unusual star-spangled rabbit. When The American Rabbit later appeared in a feature length movie, his origin story was entirely different (the movie script was not written by Stewart).
The image of The American Rabbit was so strongly associated with Stewart Moskowitz that he eventually became the artist's trademark.

Stewart Moskowitz has been widening the spectrum of pop art for forty years, beginning with the whimsical and carefree animal characters that appeared on posters, books, lunch boxes, toys, and an animated movie. The American Rabbit, Too-Loose the Chocolate Moose, and many other characters, began as large paintings on canvas. As his technical skills constantly improve, Stewart's work continues to evolve. In his studio in Humboldt county, California, he continues exploring the possibilities of airbrushed acrylic on large canvases, with a constantly expanding array of subjects and statements, and with many adaptations planned for books and other projects.
