Why have I never written about Nice Bunny?
Probably because of the controversy around his first designs. The first time I saw a design of Nice Bunny was the “Nice Bunny Paper Toys” (Tagger, DJ, Samurai, etc.)
I wanted to write about him immediately, but I read somewhere that this series was base upon BrickBoy from Sjors Trimbach and he was not happy about that.
This all has been cleared up, and you can see that the series is now with a little footnote:
The NiceBunny Paper toys are Brian Castleforte, inspired by & built on the BrickBoy template Sjors Trimbach, with permission.
(read about this story here, where Nice Bunny explains the whole story)
After all this was blown over I was to lazy to add Nice Bunny to the urban papercraft series.
And Nice Bunny exploded: he got a new site, started an online shop, started Nice Paper Toy (read my previous post), and started the Hedkase Artist series Paper Toys
And with an impressive lineup:
Ben the Illustrator
Nick Knite (SIZZA)
and the list goes on and on (check it out)
What can I say…. I’m sorry 😉
