Will is my bear, and he is real. It is purely a coincidence that he slightly resembles a fictional bear wrenched from classic English literature and warped into a crude cartoon pastiche in the
Land of the Heavily Armed and the Free.
Will does sometimes invade my paintings: he tends to go missing though - particularly after he has spent time over exercising his drinking arm, which he is wont to
do from time to time.
These sketches give you an idea the sort of bear he is: keep an eye on the paintings..... you (and I come to that) never know when he might turn up again...........
