After seeing Lucky Bunny spotlighted in Alternative Press, I reached out to artist and founder Rich DeSimone to talk about the inspiration behind the company. Named after his rescued bunny, Lucky, the brand has grown from producing concert posters for the likes of X and Wilco to releasing series after series of sold-out fine-art prints and foraying into the world of T-shirts and toys. Check out what Rich had to say about animal testing, adopting and caring for bunnies, and how you can make a difference by supporting cruelty-free companies:

After stopping by the Bob Barker Building in Los Angeles, Rich hit the print shop with peta2 in mind. He created a limited run of Lucky Bunny tees exclusively for peta2. Each tee is unique, and the entire screen-printing process was documented on the Lucky Bunny website. I highly recommend you check it out! These might be the coolest T-shirts of all time:
