New Bear and Bird Website!

A little while back Amanda from the Bear and Bird gallery asked if I would like to do some artwork for their new website. They have such a cool gallery and I have had so much fun doing artwork for them that there was no way I could say no!


(I tried to pay respect to some of the other really cool artwork people have done for the gallery in those little picture frames.)


Amanda only wanted a piece or two and she was totally cool with whatever ideas I came up with. I guess I went a little crazy.




My goal was to show the characters in fun situations and establish their friendship but still leave them open for other people to explore too. I guess it would be like giving little snapshots of their lives but still leaving the viewer wanting to see more.













It got to a point were I couldn't decide which ones to finish in color so I sent Amanda all of the roughs and let her pick her top four.





I also did a black and white stamp for them and before I sent all of the originals out I threw a little watercolor on it.



I had so much fun with this! I'm glad there were deadlines because I could have just kept going. So check out their new website when you get a chance!

Now I guess I should start working on my own banner...
