New Bear and Bird artwork by Allison Reimold!

I just received the finely detailed and totally killer piece that I commissioned Allison Reimold to create for us! She was awesome to work with and I was so happy that she was willing to share her fabulous talent! The original piece is graphite on watercolor paper.

This new "Bear and Bird" artwork will used for the upcoming Bear and Bird t-shirt for 2011. I'm thinking waterbased black ink on heathered gray super soft shirts... goal is to have them DONE by early March. :-)

I think my favorite part of this piece is the bear's claws and the girl's expression.

At right you can also check out the sketch version of this piece. It is It is always interesting to see the process before the finished piece.

Allison is currently based in Los Angeles, California. We have a few of her original graphite pieces available in our current Small Stuff exhibition, only up for another week!
