Scaredy Bear















'It was a dark and stormy night, and Daniel felt sure that the tree outside his window was coming to get him...'

Oh, he looks so scared! I love how he's hugging the covers tight, trying hard to be brave. I love his claws, and the whole bedroom composition, the picture on the wall, the burning candle and flying curtains (and his toy bunny, of course!)
Beautiful watercolor!

wonderful illustration! hand in the window and the moving candle-light make so creepy feeling - i'm worry with this bear too.

Thanks guys!
I'll let you into a secret: I only thought to give him a toy once I'd inked the outline of him in the bed, so I couldn't tuck it under the covers with him. Poor bunny does look rather abandoned!

This is a really beautiful illustration - and such a scary tree-hand! I love the candle light being blown sideways - and the colors too. Wonderful work!

Oh I want to snuggle with that big bear! Nice setting and lovely touches, especially the little discarded stuffed bunny at the foot of the bed.

That tree branch hand is pretty scary. Creepy and cool all in one — good stuff!
