These are just some casual shots of bears at various stages from the last couple of months. I try to always get a good "formal" picture of each toy before it leaves the studio but in the mad rush of the holidays I think I missed a couple. I just finished my last custom order for a while and am gearing up for lots of teaching in the next semester and into the summer. I miss making toys when I'm not doing it but in order to make time for other projects I have to take a break with the toys for a while. I'm looking forward to sharing other things with you here like projects with my kids and my own drawing and painting.
