Since I enjoyed joining in for the Doggust daily drawing challenge via Instagram, I decided to keep it rolling by participating in Septembear.

As you can guess from the equally as punny name, this month was all about drawing bears — and mostly fictionally bears at that. 🐻

I started out with a prompt list made by @melophilus but ended up changing a lot of the bears to ones that I was more familiar with — how many do you recognize?

I decided to draw all the bears in the form of honey bear bottles that are sold at the super market. I like to think that nearly every bear represents a different honey flavor.

The finale for the month was “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” which I reinterpreted with a supermarket shelf twist. Thinking what sort of grocery product might be found on the same aisle as a honey bear, I had the iconic Morton Salt Girl stand in as Goldilocks.


最後の話題は「ゴルディロックスと3匹のくま」だったので、スーパーにありそうなもので考えるとゴルディロックスをアメリカの有名な塩ブランド「Morton Salt」の金髪女の子マスコットにしました。

She’s left her salt behind for baby honey bear…
