Bear-ing my Heart

One of my best buddies, bear-enthusiast, pun-lover and kick-ass illustrator Christie Lee turned 22 on Sunday! And it is with great pride that I can say I finished a birthday present on time. Below is how I went about painting my gift for her.

Step 1: plenty of doodling and noodling around…

Step 2: refining it some more…

Step 3: getting the sketch…

Step 4: and then paint!


I highly¬†recommend¬†checking out her work! Her digital paintings are the perfect balance of whimsy and craftsmanship. You can find Christie’s portfolio at
