Everybun is Art

The Basics: Make a big sticker of your rabbit and stick it up in an interesting, strange, etc....sort of a place. Take a picture and post it on your blog including a link to the main site. Rabbit's Guy, when he isn't dodging bullets, will get the image off your blog and include it in the main site, which he is going to make and manage in between cleaning up rabbits. The main site will be a place where all the pics are displayed.
Sydney wanted to be on a fire hydrant too...

We Need a Name: Pick one or two of your favs from these humble entries and let me know in comments. You may also include ideas of your own. We will be narrowing the choices down a few times, I think....

Rabbits For All
Stuck On Rabbits
Your Idea________

Mission Statement: We are a diverse group of humans who adore rabbits. We come from all over the globe. Our lives are enriched by interacting with these personable and surprising mammals; Leporidae Lagomorpha. We think the world would be a better place with more images of of rabbits. These stickerings are part guerrilla art statement and part art simply for public appreciation.( Please feel free to make suggestions on this part too, this is all a WIP (work in progress ! ))

Artsy Craftsy: When I made the Tyler and Sydney stickers I used Avery Sticker Project Paper 3383 for Ink Jet, these are simple 81/2 by 11 inch removable sticker sheets. After choosing a photo I simply printed it out and then cut out the rabbit. This last part is optional, there is not reason you couldn't use the whole thing for your rabbit statement.  It is important to use removable stickers just in case someone thinks you are defacing property, it isn't permanent, Dude, so chill. If you don't have a printer, OK, Email me your photo(s) and address and make you some. If you don't have a rabbit and want to participate Email me your address and I'll send you some Sydneys and Tylers.

In Closing: Keep your eyes on Houseful of Rabbits and here too for further developments . I hope I haven't forgotten too much, last nightat midnight I woke up with a jolt because there was an ant crawling IN MY EAR. I tried being patient, I tried using gravity to convince the little fellow to leave, I tried creating a vacuum with my hand. I imagined I might shove it further into my ear with a Qtip, but it was driving me NUTS, a Qtip worked just fine. It was hard to get back to sleep after that and I imagine I'm not really all here.....

Tyler is concerned with the safety of our neighborhood streets.


Have lovely weekends everyone and everybun.

I like the hands on approach. I guess I'll make some of "Saved Dave" and see what kind of mischief I can get him into.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Sticky Buns!

Re: the ant--horrifying. Some little guy trotting down your ear canal, trying to decide where to put his ant sofa. Or...he has a pet rabbit, and he's thinking of posting a sticker?

How about Stick-a-Bun(n)?

I'm sorry about the ant thing. I hope you're fully recoverd. That cannot have been a good experience.

PJ said...

I also like Sticky Buns. %>)

tamara said...

sticky buns! that is so great.

maybe the mission statement could also have something like:

These sticky buns may surprise you. There are more delights in store if you are new to the world of rabbits: they can be litter trained, get along with cats and other pets, do truly acrobatic happy-dances, kiss their favorite people just like dogs, and can even be taught tricks. They are funny, smart, and at least as surprising as these stickers. We hope sticky buns will encourage you to learn more about bunnies, adopt them, and free them from cages and hutches to see them in their full glory, hopping around (and ruling) happy houses.

What a fantastic idea! I have already printed several pics of Hugo and Miss Eve in preparation of my trip (leaving tomorrow for another work conference), and although I don't have sticker printing paper, I shall just take with me sellotape and try it out!
I like Sticky Buns as a name, another one that comes to mind could be Invasion of the Bunnies ;-)

Sticky Buns!!

Now all I need are sticker sheets, and oh yeah, a colour printer!! :D

I feel you on the ant! I once had a mosquito lost inside my ear.. never want to go through that again!!

i like the last pic - not just is ty concerned about safety but every sign like that should have a bun on it ;-p after all buns are family too

PJ said...

I'm having trouble finding the repositionable sticker paper. I'm going to try Joann's and after that I'm going to improvise.

FrecklesandDeb said...

We agree with most everyone! Sticky Buns is our favorite! Now, where should we stick Freckles...

furrybutts said...

Thanks for the kind offer, D! I've found someone with a colour printer to lend me, so I hope to get started on the sticky bun pictures next weekend, woot!
