A Marriage of Creative Artistry: The Battle Bunnies

Unique, Hand-Drawn Illustrations Drop March 2022, With Future Animation in Development

The crypto space is expanding rapidly. It’s been a tidal wave of opportunity, with new projects popping up to disrupt traditional business models further.

The explosion of cryptocurrency has led to many exciting developments — especially in the non-fungible token (NFT) world.

The Battle Bunnies

The Battle Bunnies is the first-of-their-kind, hand-drawn illustrations by world-renowned tattoo artists Frank La Natra and Christa La Natra, with over 100 industry award achievements and 24 years of experience as professional artists. 

The initial collection consists of 5,000 pieces categorized into six classes of bunnies with over 400 unique traits available via a collectible token sale on The Battle Bunnies website in March 2022. The artist duo view their soon-to-be-minted NFTs as a space to build a community. 

Frank and Christa have long been interested in animation. They both attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, where they received their Bachelors of Science in Illustration.


At Food Fight Studios, we saw an opportunity to join this project and combine our animation industry experience with the skill of world-renowned artists to bring the Battle Bunny characters to life through animation and VR.

“I’ve been granted the privilege of creating my visions for tattoo fans around the world for many years,” said Frank La Natra, owner of Into the Woods Tattoo Gallery, as well as La Natra Art Studios.

“It’s been a long-held dream to go to the next phase of my artistic abilities in creating characters in the digital space, let alone this new frontier of blockchains.

This partnership with Food Fight Studios, along with the talents and contributions of my wife, Christa, represents a new chapter in our artistic journey while building on a creator economy that has endless and exciting possibilities.”

“NFTs represent a new beginning for the animation industry and opens up endless possibilities for creators to retain control of their work and their fans to participate in the process.” Said Founder of Food Fight Studios and award-winning Animation Producer, Jon Briggs.

“This is a partnership of purpose with Frank and Christa, one my team and I are ready to bring to life with the support of the NFT community embracing ‘The Battle Bunnies.’”

It’s paramount that we pave our own path to define what owning an NFT is all about, which is why we are embracing exciting opportunities within VR and animation with the Battle Bunny team! 

The Oculus giveaways at holding levels of 25+ NFTs are a massive part of this NFT drop. We want animation and VR immersion to be a focal part of this community, and we’re providing collectors with the utilities to not only stay involved but massive value on their NFTs built for the long haul.

The collection will be made available first to followers of “The Battle Bunnies” Discord, Join here! Followed by a public release on TheBattleBunnies.io website.

The imaginative NFTs will be available via a collectible token sale on ‘The Battle Bunnies’ website in March 2022 on the Ethereum blockchain, with proof of ownership as an ERC-721 token.

This drop is Phase 1 of a larger planned universe that has begun creative development on the animation front with the partnership of Food Fight Studios. 

This NFT partnership will be supporting efforts to evolve the universe of ‘The Battle Bunnies’ beyond art and into a fully-realized narrative.

This NFT isn’t just a collectible; it’s an experience where you can be part of something special. For the real-world give-backs, the team will be donating ten trees for every bunny minted through One Tree Planted. 

Additionally, collectors will be a part of The Battle Bunnies’ history and have a chance to take part in the creative process and development of the animations as well as the VR world of The Battle Bunnies, unseen in other NFT drops.
