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. This design was very popular at the Black Bear Diner Corporation’s Bullhead City, Arizona diner. The adjacent city, Laughlin, Nevada, had an annual river run event for motorcycles, so this design was popular during that event. This design ended up being the most popular design we sold to the diners.

Harley loves the wind in his hair, the open road, and hangin’ with his buds. Check out Harley’s trick scoot. With a bear head headlight, bear claw rivets on the saddlebags, and other bear details, Harley’s got a truly unique scoot.

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