The Bear Who Loved Me

Another one from Misery Bear's Guide to Love & Heartbreak, published by Hodder & Stoughton.

This one's my love letter to the poster art of Frank McCarthy, Robert McGinnis, and Dan Goozee (along with anyone else I might have ripped-off along the way).

Art direction by Misery Bear (with some help from Chris Hayward and Nat Saunders).

Thanks to Misery Bear for putting my drawings in his book, and I hope he remembers me when he's a Hollywood superstar.

Misery Bear Unleashed

Yesterday saw the launch of Misery Bear's first book - Misery Bear's Guide to Love & Heartbreak. Having illustrated a couple of MB's escapist fantasies for the publication, I got to hang out at the launch party last night. Everyone was very friendly and seemed to be having a lot of fun... except the bear of course who spent the evening slouched in a corner, staring mournfully into plate of sausage rolls. What a loser!

I'll be posting some of my contributions for the book shortly, but if you can't wait for that (and who in their right mind could?) get down to your local bookshop and buy it yourself or at least have a quick flick through before returning home and ordering it from amazon.

Find out more about the bear here stalk him here, say things to him here.
