Where The Wild Things Are!!

This is our art gallery creation for the Teddy Bear Artists Invitational upcoming this weekend, the 14th of August. This show is a classy, fun show, with collectors coming from all over the United States. Generally, this is the only teddy show that I do any more since I've gotten older. Binghamton, NY is only an hour from where I live. I am trying another teddy show in November at Hunt Valley in Maryland. I've never been to this show, but I've heard good things about it; my travel "partner" Lucille, has been wanting to go to this for some time, so we're trying it out this year!

Where The Wild Things Are is a neat fantasy book for kids that can inspire lots of fun doll like creations, but I started too late to get my wild things to look the way my brain wanted them to look. Anyone who creates these things, knows that art bears and art dolls usually take on a life of their own, often times not the way we pictured them.
