Mini Style Kids: Pink Bunny in a Garden Design

My new Pink Bunny in a Garden design features a sophisticated whimsy vibe. I used a playful color palette with a modern twist. Pale pink, blue denim and shades of indigo are some of my faves. The design has a rich texture that highlights the hand drawn elements. I am inspired by my garden and it seems a rabbit or two is never far away.

This pattern is available for purchase. (Access to my online client portfolio is available to manufacturers, licensees, art directors, etc. If you would like to request access to the full pattern library in her online portfolio, please use the form at the "Online Portfolio Password Request" page.

Hope you enjoy this design. It is part of a larger collection. For details on this design, you can contact me here. xo Chris

One of the exciting challenges of a designer is selecting the best color palette. And also being willing to try out new ideas. Below is an example of finding new ways to see pink through the lens of a trend. I think the new chalk pink color works perfectly on the bunny giving it a more sophisticated appeal.
