If you do what I do, (and it just so happens that I DO do what I do) you are going to draw the same sorts of things over and over and over. When you do that you tend to come up with “go to” characters. I came up with a teddy bear that has made countless appearances in my artwork for the last several years. Button eyes, (one missing) heavy stitching (to show it’s not a real bear) rounded paws.
With the cold weather kicking up again, I find myself sitting in front of the fireplace at night and trying to entertain myself while my wife grades papers. The other day I decided to make a sock version of that little bear I’ve been drawing for all these years.
