A while back, I posted about wanting to illustrate children’s books. I decided to start using my friends as inspiration, drawing little cartoon versions of each of them. This is the first of many, Leslie the Bear that goes on adventures into outer space. She’s very tough and builds her own space ships. Her likes include America’s greatest past time on a summer day and flamingos. Her dislikes are soy sauce and people who think it’s acceptable to wear sweatpants out in public.
