This little guy, and his two friends, are part of a project I am working on. A big project. A collection of embroidery patterns, quilt patterns and other things. The working title for the project is ‘In Polar Bear Country’.
The going is a bit slower than I had hoped for this project, but you know, life…
Just like the owl I posted about a little while ago, with these guys I am sticking pretty much to the sketchy, crosshatch-y feel of my original drawings of the animals. Instead of polishing them and making them more like..caricatures of the animals.
I have to say it’s a little bit nerve wracking to put a lot of time and work into a project that feels quite different from what I normally make. Maybe it will be a complete bust and no one will buy it. But I also feel like…I need to make this. And just hope that there are others who love polar bears (and friends) as much as I do.
Am I the only one who loves polar bears? :-)
