I remember as a kid I loved Teddy Bears to bits (even up till today!)
My parents wouldn't buy me one because they said it was for girls only. So, everytime I come across a toy shop that has teddy bears...I couldn't help but being sad cause I can never have them.
Rather than physically having one, I started to draw these cute plushies every time I'm on my drawing desk (Though not so cute). And I would imagine them coming up real; sitting right across the desk, drawing and listening to music with me (like the picture, of course, without the headphones...I hum to myself, instead)
Up till now, I still don't own a teddy bear...but now I know, I can draw them instead.
