|OK yes they are bunnies! Here is an excerpt about the designer.....her nickname used to be rabbit too.
These are the works of Wang Momo, a student in animation department of Beijing Broadcasting Institute created this popular lagomorph.
Here’s an excerpt taken from an article on Shanghaiist.
Wang stated that she created this character to be able to write her diary in a graphic form. Her friends and classmates always nicknamed her “rabbit” as well. The first Tuzki was very simple, and just waved his arms and shook his head. Then she created more pictures and small animations for this character based on her real life experiences. To date, Tuzki has 39 different expressions. And thanks to the 150,000,000 Tecent QQ users and 20 million MSN messenger
users in China, the popularity of Tuzki also generates income for this young woman. She is now designing Tuzki posters and postcards, which will take the rabbit beyond the definition of an internet idol.
Check out Ms. Wang’s personal blog. Loads to see and goodies to download. It’s purely in Chinese though. And though I don’t understand much, my random clicking around brought me to good stuff. Go explore and enjoy the stuff she puts up. She has a regular comic strip starring none other than tuzki too.
