It's sweet when kids have toys they love so much to the point of needing repair. Seems like this little bear had been pulled, tugged, and chewed on quite a bit in the course of his "loving." But before I stitched him up, I just had to sketch him for 20 minutes. Pen and watercolor, 5" x 7".
I really enjoy creating and reading journal-style sketches like this. I've been inspired by some new ideas in a couple books and now I can't wait to do more.
