Christie created “Bucky the Lucky Kentucky Colt” as mascot for the Kentucky Horse Park. The project included writing and illustrating the 24 page picture book. The story came straight from Christie’s childhood, growing up on a horse farm. In the story; Bucky overcomes his fears and as a
result meets new friends in the paddock. The Paddock’s Big Deal is the first of a series yet to be produced.

Christie designed many functional features into the store-front trailer: The back door was a catalog of retail items that could be moved or removed because the individual items were magnitized to the door. LED lighting used to minimize heat, the interior shelving was designed to fit a specific sized box to maximize display and storage space. The wheels had horse shoe hub caps.

Christie designed the trailer and all of the graphics involved.

Christie single handedly developed the Bucky brand by creating the Bucky character, logo and all of the supporting graphics that took Bucky to market. Christie designed all the products within the Bucky line: a series of 4 shirts, embroidered ball cap, charm, charm and bracelet, shorts, clip-clop-flip-flops, the Bucky plush, posters, stickers, tattoos, storybook, coloring book and “kick-in-the pants shorts.”
