Almost Bearadise

Medium: Watercolor, Digital/Photoshop, Image Size: 17”h x 12.5″w, ©2001.

This design was commissioned by Black Bear Diner Corporation owners, Bob and Laurie Manley, who wanted an apparel design for T-shirts to sell in their diners and to be worn by employees. They wanted a cute, anthropomorphic bear fishing on a float tube.

Just where is Bearadise? Well, its somewhere in the country where bears can relax on float tubes and fish for fat trout while they enjoy the beautiful country scenery. It’s definitely bear paradise!

Painted in watercolor, floated, and added text and effects in Photoshop.
