One year ago I was in an artistic funk. I had been freelancing like crazy - adapting my drawing/storytelling style every couple of months - but I needed a creative outlet that was more...me. I wanted to give myself the chance to explore and experiment with my own asthetic preferences without committing to one visual style.
As I scribbled bunny ears on some crappy drawings in my sketchbook, I brainstormed the possibilities... "Should I illustrate a book? Animate a short? Paint the bathroom? Hey...wait a minute! This horrible drawing of a girl looks kinda appealing in those ears. And that dinosaur sucked ass before, but now he looks like he's got some personality." The rest of the day I rode an obsessive, bipolar wave of adrenalin...signing up for a new blog, buying the domain name "Cuter in Bunny Ears," brainstorming concepts and scribbling sketches.
It's one year later and I'm a little surprised that I was able to post every day (FINE PRINT: Minus weekends and Union holidays). Thank you to everyone who submitted a bunny ears image. I love seeing how other people approach this concept in their own bizarre ways. Keep the submissions coming and I'll keep posting.
In honor of Cuter in Bunny Ears' first birthday, my talented wife, Fawn Veerasunthorn, made this plushy of CiBE (pronounced SEE-be), the little logo/mascot I have been scribbling lately.
Also, I've created a Facebook page for Cuter in Bunny Ears. I plan on posting photos, drawings, and other info that doesn't have a place on the daily blog. If you enjoy the blog, please sign up for the Facebook page.
Thanks for reading and see you tomorrow!
