Waddly Bears

I've always admired the flat graphic style of illustration from the 50's, particularly the work of Charley Harper, but for some reason I never tried it out for myself. So I spent my Friday evening playing with some gouache, wood, and familiar friends.


It looks like the cover of a sing-along album I could have grown up with, and that makes me happy. :)
