MY NAME IS JURI
I'm (The CREATOR OF) BUNNY.
Cartoon Called Life is a comic about the life of bunny, a fun, cute and sarcastic little character, obsessed with athletic bearded guys and looking for his perfect boyfriend.
It all started back in 2013. And back then, everything was kept, almost like a secret, in my notebook. My boyfriend called me "my little bunny" and that's how I started to draw from time to time little cartoons about him, my friends and our daily lives. They loved it, posted them on their Facebook, and even used it sometimes as their new profile picture. They were my only audience but we had a lot of fun.
Everything has really started in 2014, on October 22nd, when Cartoon Called Life appeared for the first time on Instagram. I was not on Facebook so I thought Instagram was a nice way to share my work with friends, but also to a larger audience, people I don't know but who might like what I do.
Since then, I have created hundreds of cartoons and published more than 200 of them on Instagram. What was just a fun activity on a rainy day has taken more and more space in my life. It's the reason why I have decided to give life to my hero.
My first book has been published this fall, and it's a personal achievement I'm quite proud of. I really hope you will enjoy it as much as me.

CARTOON CALLED LIFE is a comic about a single bunny, obsessed with athletic bearded guys, and looking for his perfect boyfriend. It depicts in a cheerful way moments, thoughts and feelings that enlivens our daily lives. Bunny is a funny and endearing, sarcastic and ironic, a little goofy, yet ultimately very “human” character that everybody can easily relate to.
After 4 years of increasing presence on social media and growing success online, it’s the first time the comic goes “offline”. The outcome is a 252-page, 17 x 17 cm (6,7*6,7 inches), hardcover book in a golden dust jacket, bringing together more than 200 illustrations created over the past four years, along with a series of new, unpublished artworks. The book was printed and bound in Belgium and holds the 100% climate-friendly label.
