Black Bear Forest
(Animal Habitats series)

19″ x 24″ ink on paper. 2009.

My Anima series explores the shape and form of nature in the Pacific Northwest. Here the black bear is re-imagined as the douglas fir forest ecosystem of plants & animals in which it lives. This guy was the first born of this “Animal Habitat” series. The original piece, surrounded by scrawled pencil notes which wouldn’t erase after I was finished inking in the art, remains in my private collection. I have never seen a black bear in the wild, but hope to one day.
