Whats a Skullbunny?

A very dear young artist friend of mine, put out a request for artist renderings of a mythical creature she tagged Skullbunny*.

The only prompt for the creature depiction was some variation of a bunny skull attached to any sort of creature body.

Why?  These depictions of Skullbunnies became part of an imaginative multi-media gallery show resembling a museum display, dedicated to the infamous Skullbunny.

My friend Leah, created detailed evidence for the rarely seen (imagined?) creature, its habitat and its eery (campy) effects in our society, including Skullbunny puppets, fashion, and cinematic influence.  The show was a big success and lots of silliness and fun ensued.

*The image above was my contribution to the show.

  1. Brilliant work. I’ve never heard of the skullbunny.

    The exhibition looked amazing, wish I had been there to see it 🙂

  2. This made me smile. What an original and awesome character! Love the slightly tilted skull and wings =)

  3. There’s a creepy 1950s-ish plastic toy called “Bunnyken”; it has a bunny head and chicken feet and lays eggs that tell your fortune. Completely bizarre and one of Steve’s most prized possessions.
