The original Dave the Bear drawing
A3 drawing on Faber Castell heavyweight paper using Derwent pencils
Dave was drawn as a request from one of my cousins, she was only 8 at the time and I was expecting her to ask for a kitten but she chose a Grizzly Bear! He took a long time to draw because of all the layers of pencil to create his dense fur. He was named by a customer at Alnwick Market who bought the first print – I think he suits it!!
