At the time this design was created, my husband and I owned Trekker Designs, an apparel decorating company, and one of the things we did was to screen print our designs onto apparel products and novelty gifts and sell them to our wholesale clients. One of our biggest clients was the Black Bear Diner Corporation. This design was one of the many black bear artworks we created which were printed on clothing, mugs, and cards that we sold to Black Bear Diner to sell in their diners and to be worn by employees. The first Black Bear Diner store was in Mt. Shasta, California, so I did this cute, anthropomorphic, snowboarding bear design since snowboarding is one of the many favorite recreation activities that are so popular in that mountain, tourist town.

Snowboarding is the perfect sport to bare all your wildness and have fun, but it isn’t a sport for wary bears. It takes bravery to bearrel fast and bear hard in the turns. This cool, detailed snowboarding bear is Bearin’ Hard at its favorite outdoor snow sport, and it is a real hotshot.

Painted in watercolor, scanned into the computer, floated, graphics, colors, effects, and text were done in Photoshop.
