Nurturing Nature.
A bear doing his part. And yes that is a snuggie.

This image takes me back to a cartoon that's almost as old as my parents, wow. Put it in the bag, bump bump!

Simple, clean, effective. Love it.

Re: Nurturing Nature


Thanks for the comments so far, guys!

I took a gamble with this one. I don't normally go "cute" or use such soft colors. It's hard to ignore the call of dark shirts, but I just really wanted to do something positive and uplifting for this derby, instead of the other way around.
Mr. Bear appreciates the support.

I saw this last night and knew it was you from the thumb - I can recognize your bears now;) Super sweet and charming, and though I'm not a fan of cream shirts to wear, I love this pallete of colors. I really love all the different background elements - they work so well. This may be one of my favorites from you.

Gonna admit something here: I've always found bears that act like humans to be completely hilarious. It's odd, but I'm not ashamed. Don't judge me.

I've always been a very judgmental person, so don't judge me for judging you and your sick fetish. ;)

Figures. I open myself up, show you a true side of my nature, share my undying passion of bears that act human, only to be mocked. Do you know how hard it was for me not to put overalls on that bear? A big straw hat? Spectacles?

I may have to make him a reoccurring character. This could be my lifes work.
Robbie has his robots, Jasneko has adorable owls,......I have my Dixon bears. I like that....;)

Wonderful artistry! Also your color choices are very well picked. Nothing is overbearing in any way!


...pardon the pun.

Very nice! I can see this being great for kids and adults. It reminds me actually of some bear image from childhood. Very sweet and endearing. I had similar idea but with a beaver instead to be ironic. Great job and good luck!

Hahaha... It looks like woot deleted my previous comments with the picture. That's dumb. Like I said earlier, the illo is great, but the way the bear is carrying the tree reminds me too much of the clown planters with the phallic like cactuses growing out there trousers. (And if you don't know what I'm talking about just google clown planter cactus images.) I'd vote/wear this design if this was changed. As is, I can't do it.

I'm sure I'll submit this one somewhere else when the 60 days are up. I'll keep you posted. GoodJoe might be a good fit for this one.
Thanks again for the support everyone!
