For the love of bears

Are bears the new animal trend I wonder? Nicole Licht's Grizzly has stole my heart, I mean, just look at it, what beautiful work! You'll be hearing about this Brooklyn-based artist a lot so if you've never paid a visit to her site, now the times to do so. Working under the name astulabee Nicole makes unique, limited edition and one-of-a-kind fabric soft sculptures for play, decoration or as an heirloom. Very special indeed.

Another artist who likes bears, be they brown or white, is Julia Pott, a freelance illustrator and animator living in London. My bear art wish-list was ridiculously long after spending only a few minutes perusing her etsy store, choc-full of delightful animal illustrations such as these

Hello I Love You print

Knitted Bear print

You Made Me a Mixtape pillow

I am in Love with You from a Distance print

32-page colour magazine

Bake Me tea towel

You can visit Julia's blog here, then have a five minute break while you watch her wonderful animation "My First Crush", discovered via the animalarium. Enjoy!
