Illustration Friday: Hibernate

For the I.F. theme of "Hibernate," here is a spot illustration of a girl and her trusty stuffed bear.

Although, since he is technically a stuffed Koala (how surprising of me to have drawn, I know)-- she is excited that he does not have to hibernate for the winter after all! Being Aussie creatures, their climates are temperate enough that hibernation isn't necessary. Leaving aside the fact that live koalas tend to sleep for around twenty hours a day, such restrictions don't apply to plushies.
So, once this girl and her toy throw on scarves and bundle up, they can go traipsing into the snow-- without once ever having to worry about finding a warm cave to hide in for the winter.

Thanks for reading, and have a great Friday!

this is so fun.
i think you have expressed the reasons as to why stuffed toys have been such a huge success in business or making money. People have needs and desires met within the make believe world.
