Based in San Francisco, artist Norio Fujikawa has created a fascinating character named Bunny Reaper that is both delightfully adorable and horrendously creepy.
Contrasting a cute, fluffy rabbit suit with child-like proportions and a maliciously grinning skull, the illustrations stand out for their perturbing portrayals. The cadaverous bunny is depicted performing everyday activities that only serve to enhance its creep-factor by tenfold. It eats sushi, practices karate, feeds pigeons in the park and rides a tricycle among other fun and playful pastimes, serving to build its character as the sweetest symbol of mortality.
If I was ever told that the Bunny Reaper was coming to get me, I would probably be more amused than frightened.
