I remember sitting night after night reading Beatrix Potter books to my children when they were young – secretly however it wasn’t the words I was interested in. Sure, the stories of Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle Duck and Benjamin Bunny were lovely but really my concentration was on the incredibly beautiful illustrations. What a talent she had!
At that point I had no reason to create my own but having more recently opened my shop CarolineLaursen.Redbubble.com, a creative dream of many years came to fruition and Chester Rabbit was born.
So far I have 35 variations of designs including him sitting on his own, sending hugs to the people we miss, giving a message of hope, love or maybe saying sorry with his gesture of a daisy and even playing marbles in all sorts of colours.
I’d love to hear what you think of Chester. Once you’ve had a browse through my store join me on Facebook to get in touch!
