Combining Bear sketches with some beautiful antique cameras. I ran across this page, about Antique Wood Camera Collector Rob Niederman. I find old wooden cameras to be so rustic and interesting. Sampled on the right of my sketch are a couple from Rob’s page. The look of these cameras fits right in with some of the bears I’ve been drawing. There’s something to be said for the craftsmanship of these cameras, hand-made and custom-built of leather, brass and wood. They are functional works of art from photographic history.
I thought the expression was the right direction on the previous sketch but wanted to make him a bit more realistic.

Only Jack Kirby could come up with the original character design for MODOK and still make it look intriguing. I was inspired yesterday by the March Madness Modok Blog, so I sketched this out.
