Meet The Artist: Luli Bunny

Posted on


Welcome to a new feature! I really wanted to find more ways to share kawaii artists and creatives so Meet The Artist is a mini interview series where you’ll find out a little bit about the person and inspiration behind some very cute shops and products. We’re starting things off with Luli Bunny, whose work you’ll recognise if you’re a fan of Momiji dolls.

Luli Bunny

Hello! Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Hola! Nice to talk with you today. My name is Lucila (aka Luli Bunny) and I am an illustrator and character designer from Buenos Aires, Argentina. For many years I’ve been creating designs for toys, stationery and games, as well as illustrated books for clients from a wide array of countries such as Argentina, UK, USA, Spain, France, Switzerland, Canada, Indonesia and Korea.

I am a big fan of all animals, especially small furry and feathered ones, and I love to sketch in the park where I can watch the birds. I love Molang and Kirby, I think that because of their cute roundness. I collect Sailor Moon toys and have been a fan since I was 12 (now 39 XD) …once a fan always a fan.

Tell us about one of your recent creations and what inspired it

Lavanda and Linden were designed for Momiji and they are two really special dolls for me. I really enjoy the process of designing a character and I am grateful that Momiji has been giving me the space to share with the world many of them.

In this particular case these designs were born as a reminder for me and everyone of the importance of the present moment, as it’s all we have. I suffer from anxiety and along the years tried to find ways of dealing with it, searching for anchors to what is and not to what I fear things will become. These dolls are a symbol of my journey and a journey that’s similar to the one of many other people.

Linden and Lavanda were born as a reminder that physical touchstones can rescue us from our whirling mind and help us return our attention to the rhythm of our breathing and the sensations of our bodies.

What else have you been working on recently?

I have been working on a lot of fun projects which I will be able to share with everyone soon (hint: toy related :) )

But also last year I worked on the design of some really cute characters as part of the “Cool Friends License” for the brand Footy based in Argentina, and many cute products are being launched.  This was a really nice experience, as the variety of characters was an interesting challenge and I loved creating all the girls that are part of the license.

What advice would you give to kawaii artists and creators that are just starting out?

The most important one for me was always to be curious and have fun. Always listen to your intuition and trust your capacity and strength. Life has ups and downs so enjoy the process, don’t give up and keep on creating.

Which cute creators do you enjoy following?

I love the work of my friends at Estudio Kudasai. They are also based in Argentina and create the cutest characters and fan-art version of characters.They have their own store where they sell amazing handmade products and ship internationally. Above is a collaboration I did with them, a sticker pack called Breakfast Time.

      That’s great to hear! Interviews have never been very popular on SCK but I’m trying to bring them back anyway.
