Fifi Lapin

Now for a totally different style…

As part of our character design process, and especially for one of our current projects, we like to look to books, magazines and the internet for clothing reference. We try to stay away from that generic “t-shirt, jeans and baseball cap” look that defines almost every animated teenage boy. We like to make the girls look like they were dressed by interesting girls :)

There is something about these illustrations that makes the Fifi Lapin blog addictive. I don’t even read the text,  I don’t follow haute couture, I am generally not into kawaii/cutesie designs  (I am very specific about the cute things that I like)  and Fifi Lapin’s flat, expressionless ‘Hello-Kittyesque’ bunny-ness has nothing to do with it. It’s not even about the clothing styles.

I don’t know what it is. I think I just love the whole idea of a fashionista rabbit.  (Maybe it’s sort of  like being into dressed-up Blythe dolls). I find the whole project fun and whimsical. I like the way the artist interprets the fabric shapes, textures and colors.
