bear aware

My entry for this week's illustration friday - fearless.

I find the concept of "bear aware" really funny, coming from a country that is unfortunately devoid of bears.

Despite carefully studying the "bear aware" guide in our hotel room in Yosemite National Park, my newly acquired knowledge disappeared when faced with a real live bear.
Yes - a bear. Looking right at me. And only about 3 metres away. (!!!)

What did I do? I turned around and said "Hey Matt, come here! There's a bear!"

I love this! So adorable. I would ride a bear if given the choice.

3 metres away! OMG! How terrifying!

Great illo, top line work and colour choice.
