My swap piece successfully arrived in New York today. This swap’s theme was books and my partner expressed a fondness and a nostalgia for Little Bear.
I’m really happy with this little guy. Even the reverse is nice (you can see where I erased a bit as I struggled with border options). As soon as I saw the expression on his face in the original Sendak illustration, I knew he was the one. I really love the borders throughout the book and was really torn when it became clear they were probably too intricate to effectively transform them to paper.
It was my very last piece of yummy paper though. I’m going to have to hunt for more.
