Bear Portraits

It’s funny, but when I started them these portraits were just something I did for fun (paint pictures of guys I think are cute) between bigger projects to help keep my stills sharp. But when I focused on Bear themed stuff for my work, since I already had a handful already completed, the portraits rose to the top of the list and officially became the "Bear Portrait Series".

Not only did contacted the subjects of the original paintings I'd already done, in order to receive permission to use them so publicly and professionally, but before doing anything new, I contacted a slew of other guys to get permission to include as well. There are a little over 60 guys in all on my list and (with the exception of the original for fun paintings I'd done) I'm working my way through that list alphabetically. When all is said and done, there will be at least one painting of each guy, while a handful will get two, and a few of those will even get three. Once I have reached 100 of these paintings, that will be Series 1. 

Prints of them individually are (obviously) already for sale, but I'm going to also farm the series out to publishers to be turned into an art book, and once that is made, all the originals will be for sale as well. A Series 2 will be completely dependent on how successful the first is.
