Believe it or not, the main inspiration for Walthamstow Bunny was Suede’s lead singer Brett Anderson. Suede are Art Rabbit’s favourite band and while watching their DVD we loved the way Brett moved so much, we started sketching him – as a rabbit! We named it Brett the Bunny and later its silhouette became Walthamstow Bunny.

We’ve made Walthamstow Bunny in all kinds of materials, from card to felt, wool, neon and plywood. We’re also working on some outfits for future colour illustrations.

Walthamstow Bunny loves E17, especially the green spaces, the Village, old buildings, museums and the creative community. He supports the arts, local shops, healthy eating and caring for the environment. He’d like to become Walthamstow’s mascot!
