Star Wars Bunny Art

Who knew those tough characters working for the Empire liked bunnies? In Kelly Kerrigan’s artwork, the Nashville artist depicts Boba Fett, clone warriors, and other Star Wars characters showing their softer side, cuddling bunnies.

Boba Fett with bunny

Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett holds a bunny in Kelly Kerrigan's painting, "Boba Fett and Fuzzy Bunny."


In an interview with StarWars.com, Kerrigan talks about the impetus for her work:

This new series of artwork is how my creativity has responded to the death of my husband, Paul. He died on December 18, 2010 after finding out in August the he had a rare cancer. We both loved Star Wars and he had a particular connection to rabbits as they are portrayed in movies, books and gaming.

For me, being without my best friend for the rest of my life makes me very angry, among other emotions. Some days I feel ruthless and wish for a menacing helmet to wear as I move through the masses. However, we have a 3 year old little boy named Milo, who is the spark of my life even more so now. He has lost his father and I want no other harm to come to him. As if he was a little bunny, I have to learn how to move through this new life with a sense of maternal nurturing as well as defense and protection.
