7 years ago I painted a picture of a bear with a fiery belly for a friends film concept. I whimsically saved the file as ‘bear_heart.jpeg and whilst the original concept got swept into the ether, the name has stuck with me since. I guess I like the poetry of the two words. Today I decided I needed a new Twitter avatar. Fixated with the desire for something simpler than I had, I set about bringing bear heart to life.
