Bears,

Much of my recent work is panel-oriented because I’m an aspiring graphic novelist. In this illustration I wanted to show certain aspects that give an LGBT bear his look. I used myself as reference because I feel I fit the bear or cub look. Once I have an illustration idea, I draw out thumbnail sketches and write words, sentences, and colors – everything I’m thinking about. I don’t always work from photo references, but prefer to, because my realistic illustrations give me the most sense of pride.
