Fortunately, last year Becky and me played this game by post. Unfortunately, only Becky could draw bears:
BEARS BEARS BEARS
Is most of the text of Bears, by Ruth Krauss and Maurice Sendak – that’s a good book. Anyway, here are some bears:
I have never been very happy with the bears I’ve drawn before, so I thought I’d investigate the world of long-nose bears. And I like it.
Okay so some of them are geese. The maths is because he rode over a list I was writing.
Then I screenprinted one bear for birthday purposes, though I’m not sure he’s got a proper grip on that balloon.
Recently I went to Finland with Becky to see the moomins and their house. Apparently, Finland also has wolves – luckily I did not know this or I might have stayed home and looked for a man with a load of bricks. So here is the first of two comics we drew, which tells more or less what happened to us in Helsinki. The next instalment can now be found on Becky’s blog. A few things may be obscure, such as how all brochures and some humans said the Finnish thing was to go and “be in the Nature”, how there were many gigantic inflatable ice-hockey players in Helsinki’s Narinkkatori, and how the wading stanley is an avid philatelist. Oh and the Finnish dinner is not really part of the story.
My family and other bears
As was once firmly established on a placemat in Antepliler, there are all manner of bears. Some bears have mullets, for example, whilst some others are almost spherical. Here is my family as bears, I am the stumpy one:
As I understand it, there are also a number of geese. We know from Sesame Street that some geese live with mooses, but I think some do most likely also live with bears:
Possibly this is next?
