I have three new designs this spring. Two of them are done in watercolor - felt like the right medium to express the lightness of this cheerful, fresh season.
I made the bunny illustration originally as my personal New Year card for 2011. (For those in the western culture; it is the year of rabbit in Japan, China, and many Asian countries that applies one of the 12 zodiac animals to each year.) I got lots of compliment on it, so, on a popular demand, I made it come back as a birthday card!
|What a perfect card to send out to your friends who were born in the year of rabbit!|
This is also a tribute to my favorite artist/graphic designer/children's book author/illustrator/printmaker Hans Fischer. I got inspired by his lines & color scheme in his "Der Gestiefelte Kater (Puss in Boots)".
