I’m a French illustrator based in Lyon. I have been drawing big naked dudes since 2017. At first I started this project for fun and with time it has become more and more activist in order to provide a positive online depiction of large male bodies. For this image, The glacier, I wanted to create something poetic and show the softer side of bears. I believe that, too often, the fetishisation and sexualisation of bears has shown an incomplete image of them. Through this illustration I would like to broaden the perspective of how bears are depicted across all media.
