Cheryl's Works Response

Thanks for sharing your work with the class, Cheryl. It is so nice to see your work as you help us learn new techniques and develop ideas. When I first saw your work, I wasn't exactly able to understand the reasons for having bear faces for heads on human bodies. If I would dare reference South Park, It reminded me of the Man-Bear-Pig joke minus the Pig. The images are so beautifully contrasted though, the body language of the children and adults almost helps me guess the expression of the bear face. Another thing that I find really interesting is the use of the pretty color pink on what looks to me like a bomb explosion. It almost makes it look cute but then I think to myself, "Wait, no this is an explosion it isn't cute!" Overall, the pieces were really amusing and I enjoyed listening to your stories about bears.
