Bear book

Bear book cover

bear book

Made from offcuts of paper from a different project. I know animal people are somewhat overdone but there's still something very satisfying about them.

Important people/animals/objects group project

Four of us each described an important person/animal/object, then drew everyone else's as well as our own. Here's a selection of mine. I was trying full colour & it came out with a very childrens-book feel, not sure about it, but it was fun to try.

Nettle went on baby pig's nose Toy rabbit on bed
Sam in front of red blocks Extremely fat and lazy cat
Green dress girl likes bike This cat has many victims

Here's a section of the final piece, we laid it all out in a grid. Interesting to see everyone's different styles and interpretations.
