Miffy, the sweet little bunny, has been capturing hearts the world over since she was first created in 1955 by Dutch artist, Dick Bruna (1927-2017). What started out as a sweet tale shared with his son quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, with kids and parents alike falling for the adorable charms of Miffy and her relatable, kid-friendly story lines.
Dick Bruna created each of his Miffy illustrations by hand using pencil & black poster paint, together with primary colors. Often it could take Dick Bruna a whole day to get her expression just right in his hand drawn minimalist black graphic lines. He called his black lines “a line with a heartbeat”.
