Bear Up A Tree
(22.75"x13.5" Acrylic, Graphite, Gloss Medium on Panel)

This is my first international art piece. It resides on the wall of Jocks, a skate and surf shop in Nanokamachi Japan. This eerie illustration is a good fusion between my fine art and illustration styles. I wanted to create a very layered effect for this painting. I worked a little looser than I normally paint to building up many layers. I consider the painting to be cute yet eerie a theme that works well in Japan.
