Cute ‘N’ Cubbly

Medium: Watercolor, Digital/Photoshop, Image Size: 20”h x 22″w, ©2003.

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. Unfortunately, this design never got printed. I thought it would make a cute, anthropomorphic bear design of three bears cubs who’ve been picking berries. Cute ‘N’ Cubbly is a play on the phrase “cute and cuddly”, and I think these little guys probably would be cuddly.

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