The Easter holiday is coming and I thought it would be festive to design some Easter icons to release on IconDock. After several days of hard work, I designed over 40 Easter icons and decided to release them as free icons at IconDock. I purposely designed the bunny and birdy in various postures, so go creative and create new icons by mixing and matching. Head over to IconDock to download the Easter Bunny Icon Set. Below is the original sketch and the final icon preview.
