Frederick Bear opens with a retelling of the medieval legend of the founding of Bern, where Frederick and his army of bears, help defeat a ruthless prince who holds the city in his evil grip.
Ive always had a fascination with all things Philatelic and through various circumstantial events I was encouraged to develop one of the illustrations from my new book "Frederick Bear -A Tale of Bern" for Swisspost.  This work is called Growl and is the penultimate drawing in the book. The illustration was done completely on the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil at 8K resolution! I combined this drawing in Photoshop in many layers to craft a postage stamp from it.

Frederick Bear is a retelling of the medieval legend of the founding of Bern, framed in a modern setting. The author and illustrator of the book is Dent-de-Lion du Midi, who has his studio Meisterwerke Altstadt in the historic quarter of Bern.

Another close-up view of one of my recent works.  This is a detail from "The Weight of the World" an illustration featured in my book "Frederick Bear - A Tale of Bern". The original relief / sculpture holds up a lovely tower that stands out from an old house on the Münstergasse here in the Altstadt.  You can examine the complete drawing in an earlier post.

Frederick Bear  A Tale of Bern is my third book. I wrote and illustrated this book over the course of the last two and a half years. Each of the ten chapters has a major and a minor illustration all drawn by hand on the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil the first digital tool that I have found that actually allows me to reach the quality of my pencil and paper work.

This is "Angel" an illustration from my new book Frederick Bear  A Tale of Bern. It's a story for "children of all ages"... that just about covers everyone... one would hope!  The original sculpture of an angel with a shield is over a large door on the North side of the  Berner Münster. I added a bear... #bern #bear #switzerland #art #literature #book #drawing #procreate #digital-art #apple #iPad #print #giclée #realism #illustration #sketch #artist #instaart #artwork #angel

"Beast and Prey", an illustration from my book "Frederick Bear - A Tale of Bern". Executed by hand in Procreate on the iPad Pro. The original sculpture is based on a gargoyle on the roof of  Berner Münster. I thought that this sculpture perfectly represented the terrifying clash of the protagonists at the end of the book. #bern #bear #switzerland #art #literature #book #drawing #procreate #digital-art #apple #iPad #print #giclée #realism #illustration #sketch #artist #instaart #artwork
