i’m so excited to introduce a dream project of mine come to fruition! when australian company bunificent got in touch with me for a bunny watercolor illustration for new product packaging, i jumped at the chance. i’ve been a long-time follower of the adorable butterycups on instagram & a vocal bunny lover for even longer.

the paints i used
bunificent specializes in treats, toys, and accessories for small pets. we worked together on a realistic watercolor illustration for a buttercup-inspired hay topper “Featuring Buttercups favourite ingredients: Chamomile flowers, Fennel Seeds, Rose Buds & Calendula Flowers”. my boy pippin (shown below with a quick pencil portrait i did of him) loves their hay toppers & can’t wait to try this one!
