I’m starting a sort of a weekly webcomic. Just trying it out–but would love it if people wanted to contribute to this! It will make it a lot more fun. Please feel free to participate in the comments section, or to reblog it! Here is a description of how I’m hoping it will go:
New game for the new year! TELL ME A STORY! I’ve been making these sketches of a grim bunny for a few months now, and I thought I’d try doing it as a weekly moleskine-series for a while. The problem is… I DON’T KNOW WHO THE GRIM BUNNY IS OR WHAT TGB IS DOING. I’ve got these pictures that tell me that TGB has a particularly exciting life, but all I’ve got are these moments in time–we need some continuity! We need a story arc, motivation, everything!! So tell me:
Who is the Grim Bunny? What is TGB doing? What happened before or after these pics? What is the larger story arc? What are TGB’s motivations, ideologies, etc? Is TGB a he or a she? Or is there another bunny-specific pronoun we should introduce?
Let me know! Reblog or comment (here, on tumblr, or on my wordpress site) with your take on TGB and TGB’s adventures. I will plan on doing a weekly update to the series for as long as I can keep it up no matter what, but it would be a lot more fun if this could be more interactive! But if you share, please always link back to one of my posts (here or on DA or tumblr)!!! Feel free to use some of the tags I’ve used here (#thegrimbunny #tgb #grimbunny #whoisthegrimbunny #grimbunnystory #grimbunnymotivation etc)
I’m giving you the first two pages at once here–the first two I made, a few months ago. I’ve got a few more stored up, and hope to keep working on these as time goes on. Don’t know how long this will last, but let’s enjoy it while it’s here! 🙂
You can also follow the series on my tumblr, and on my deviantart account (First Pic, Second Pic). If you all seem to like this, I will try to put together some TGB merchandise, so participate or let me know if you like the series!
Also, I discovered that there is a character called the Grotesquely Grim Bunny in an episode of the children’s cartoon Arthur, plus it seems like there are a lot of people doing pics of a grim reaper type bunny–TGB in this series is unaffiliated w/ those other grimmies. I’m sure they are all very nice as well.
