The Bear and its ears

Few years ago I had a little job to do – to draw something as a decoration for a children clothing shop in Vilnius Old Town. I can’t find any pictures from then (too lazy now to look for them in my messy computer), but this summer I made few new. This bear somehow became a little tourist attraction, people take pictures with him, if you go to Vilnius, visit Skapo street and take a picture for me and email to [email protected]

And there is a funny story behind this. When I arrived to Lithuania and was walking down that street I saw that the bear is missing it’s ears. They were overpainted while renovating the building or something.  I didn’t have the camera with me. I should come at night and paint the ears, I thought.
One day I was going somewhere and I saw a man carrying a small bucket of  dark brown paint. This would be the perfect for my bear, I thought. But it was completely another street, quite close, but different. I walked my way.
Some days later I went through the bear again. What a surprise – it had it’s ears back.

And a graffiti “Happy, for the repainting of the ears”.

That made my day. I am not sure if the man with a little paint bucket was the one who repainted it, but I like to believe so.

Update
These are pictures I found online.

Leela’s house

i know a little girl named Leela.

She has a house. While Leela was too small to play there, her house was occupied by spiders and other creatures. And blue walls inside looked too dark.

So, me with Leela’s mum took brushes and repainted it. It is still miss few more layers of floor paint in the balcony, but still looks cozy.

Spider didn’t like white walls, so he moved out. There is plenty space for a dog. And even aquarium.

Sitting room.

Veranda.

Children liked the cat – they “feed” him with chocolate and chalk 🙂
