Yogi Bear and Prince

July 12, 2022


This isn't really much of a blog post, but in an effort to get me back to making more regular posts I figured I'd share a little art from this past weekend.  Simply put, I've been in a bit of a funk this year and haven't drawn much.  Last Saturday it was a yucky day outside so I forced myself to put pencil to paper.  On my phone I keep notes for whenever some sort of drawing idea, lyric, or line pops into my head so that I won't forget it since it seems my short term memory has been shot to hell anymore!  Saturday I scrolled through that and this idea came up from about two years ago - Yogi Bear quoting a line from Prince's 'When Doves Cry'.  You know our old friend Yogi always has a rumbling stomach from his perpetual hunger!


So there it is.  This is what it sounds like when bears cry.  NOW... I've got to get back to drawing MORE!  


My pencil sketch of our two friends Yogi and Boo Boo Bear.
