BBAA and Pretty Toys

DaDa, 1st place (International artist) British Bear Artist Awards
I'm so thrilled that my panda, DaDa has won first place in British Bear Artist Awards (International category). And I'm delighted to know what the judges said about my bear:

"Delightful airbrushing on the eyes",  "Beautifully cub like",  "Wonderful shaping on the face". These valuable comments are an encouragement to me, and I'll keep designing and creating more lovable bears and friends in the coming year : )

Besides, I'd like to share with you a feature of YuYu Bear on the latest issue of "Pretty Toys" magazine from Russia (English version) No.4-2011.

  4. Pomeranians are small dogs with thick fur around the neck region that makes them look like little lions. Some Pomeranian owners claim that these dogs love being carried around and placed on the lap as they are essentially lap dogs, but dogs are individuals and some dogs enjoy certain things while others don't so you will have to find out what your Pomeranian prefers. As with many toy breeds, these dogs require gentle but firm handling. Once you've dried your dog, applying a little baby powder and brushing the dog will make his fur shine and smell divine. popular teddy bears
