In 2001, well-known graffiti artist Dave Persue inserted a cutesy character amidst his abstract letterforms, forever changing the trajectory of his career. While his graffiti propelled him forward into the world of skateboarding and aesthetics, eventually helping him pioneer the marketing space for artists and shape some of the most iconic streetwear brands, including DC, Circa, and Osiris, that character took on a life of her own.
BunnyKitty was born on a wall, but now she lives on the page, first in The Origins of BunnyKitty (2016), which was a collaboration between Persue and his mother, and now in her latest adventure, BunnyKitty in the City. This sequel sees the titular character arriving in the city in search of her family, sending her on the ultimate journey of self-discovery. The beloved cat in a bunny suit demonstrates the classic pursuit of good over evil, giving readers a chance to see BunnyKitty as Persue has always envisioned her. With Notables at the helm of this project, the exploration of this IP within the web3 machine is endless, leaving lots of exciting opportunities with BunnyKitty to come in the future.
