Welcome to the Bears, illustrated project. It is a free downloadable calendar featuring twelve artists from around the world who homage the men they love and admire. A collective project about beauty, drawing and sharing, tipping its hat to pin-up tradition with a big hairy twist.

The fourth edition since the project began in 2010 (see the previous years at the bottom of this page), this years calendar comes in Spanish, English and French, the three languages spoken by the 2013 participants from Detroit, Barcelona, Auckland, Santiago de Chile, New York, Madrid, La Rochelle, Sevilla and Los Angeles. Find out more about them and the story behind each original artwork below. The calendar PDF is prepared to download and print on any A4-size paper and a black and white printer for optimum results.

Check out our facebook and write to if you wish to receive news and updates, suggest artists for future editions or send some feedback. Now download the calendar, enjoy and share if you like it! What you love is important.

This project is organised, designed, translated and coded by Christian Fernández Mirón and would not be possible without the very talented and generous participating artists. I hope to continue next year with yet another edition for 2014. It will be the fifth anniversary and something special is in store! A book of the collection so far? An exhibition of prints? Who knows!
