Labbits at We Can Create

When I heard that Frank Kozik was coming to We Can Create this year, I was there already. I collect Frank’s bunny inspired labbit and dunny toys and he is one of my design heroes. Geek out! Frank Kozik was the grand finale for We Can Create and I was super stoked that he talked a lot about his toys. He even mentioned that his fans regularly sent him pictures of their toys on wedding cakes and in different scenarios. Frank Kozik Graphic artist, San Fransisco Unlike many of the other speakers, Frank seems to enjoy designing for niche and an underground. With any successful artist, Frank questioned if people were collecting his early gig posters because they liked his work, or because people were collecting their favourite band’s poster – no matter what it looked like.

Salmon and an easy guacamole

They had a dunny toy that came with a top hat. Sadly, in the madness of our wedding cleanup, the top hat was lost forever. Here are some other wedding toppers from around the world that have been inspired by Kidrobot’s toys: Monster dunny wedding toppers by Lunabee. Azteca and Tattoo Series Dunny. Jed and Stacey’s dunny wedding toppers. A couple of labbits at a Coquette Events wedding. Customised Munny wedding cake toppers by Br0wn. Custom painted BUB and ROOZ by Spanish artist WuzOne for Chaffro and Nat_Kitkat’s wedding cake. The next two are commisioned toppers by How …
