A Bunch of Bears

Here we are. Here are the bears of which I was speaking in my last post.

I've been doing some greeting card ideas featuring smiling and snuggly bears, and I'm also working on an idea for a book, which is basically all about bears doing things.
So, consequently, I'm doing lots of sketches of bears.
I don't think I've drawn anything else for the past week, actually.
But that's ok. I like drawing bears, and I feel I'm really getting to know them.
Some of these are a bit rougher than others.

Jungle Shorts

Hi again chaps.

Following on from the last few posts, here's another bit of work done recently.
This is the sketch stage of the cover for a book about a boy who's Mum buys him embarrassing Jungle patterned shorts to play football in. (I only put the pattern in with the colour though)

It was quite a nice tight brief for what was they wanted included image-wise, which I often quite like. Sometimes if it's left a bit open I get options paralysis, but if some constraints are put on, I can get something out nice and quick.
So it was a nice job to do.

In other news, I've decided to do some ideas for some greeting type cards.
At the moment I'm planning on these being based around bears
(Lot of bears in my work at the mo, and more coming up, so I'll be getting a lot of practise.)
But I'll put up some of the bear sketches soon.
