I love Gloomy bear. She is a character created by Japanese graphic designer, Mori Chack. I have a "stuffed" gloomy that lives in my car and another here in my studio. I recently made this collage in a burst of creativity. It is pretty large - 3 feet by 4 feet. I would like to turn it into a series and make all my favorite cartoon characters or advertising icons, like diggum the frog, the smurfs, bloo, spongebob, Zoidberg, Bender, frankenberry etc etc. Maybe i can get a grant, a ton of magazines and a gallery to support me in the making and showing of these collages. Thanks go out to Natalie Tischler for the magazines to make Gloomy.
