I have been making an effort to define what my bears are all about. It isn't easy because when you start out all you have is and idea and no clue how to achieve it. I am just going into my 9th year as a bear maker and now I have many skills to produce bears with, but in learning those skillls it's very easy to get bogged down with techniques which can easily cloud the original vision.
So lately I have been trying to revisit the original idea of 'my bear' that I started out with. I am still developing techniques but here is the sweet little bear I made. His name is 'Just Andy' and he is quite traditional for me...I had to stop myself from 'tweeking' him.. but I love his sweet look and hope there will be more like him!
'Just Andy' has a new mom already!
