GRUMPY FREAKSHOW SUBMISSIONS



First and foremost, I gotta thank my family for pulling together this holiday weekend and painting up a bear. This first bear's theme was my wife and daughter's idea. It's a CATBUS from the animated movie "My neighbor Totoro" I helped with the early sketch, but most of the labor was my family. The only thing I handled was the sculpting and drawing the face. Believe it or not, I was only 20% of this project. Hats off to my wonderfully talented FAM.


My 2 budding female artists







This is the completed CHOO CHOO bear. I really like the way he came out. I might have to bust out some sketches of 'em.




I'm participating in a vinyl toy show in Cleveland where a group of artists are painting on a blank Grumpy Bear that I designed. Below is one of my custom pieces. I want it to have a little golden book feel. He's a train engineer named CHOO-CHOO. If you want to see more works in progress by other artists, feel free to swing by the GRUMPY FREAKSHOW BLOG

Cute.

The Catbus is definitely more classy than a Greyhound bus.
