I Love this image.
Actually, I'm considering getting it tatooed.
I feel it captures what I am to this day. (even though I'm not a "child" anymore)

I've seen this image recently in a Facebook post and I cannot stop thinking about it.  I saw it with the tagline "Protecting small children from monsters under the bed since 1902" and I wonder why no stories have been made to explain why teddy bears are anchored to the task of protecting children from monsters.  I want to collaborate with you and possibly make a children's story that would further detail the mythology of the battle between teddy bears and childhood monsters.  I saw that there was interest in a movie deal in 2013, but I haven't heard anything about it until I looked up information about your drawing.  I feel that the magic of a story that delves with childhood fears, imagination, and believing in something that all can relate to would cover a wide audience and I feel we could come up with something original and classic.  Would you be interested in discussing this project further?  Please contact me through my profile.  I'm an artist and a writer as well.  Thank you!

The origin of the teddy bear comes from Theodore Roosevelt. Here's a link you might want to check out:…

Such a memorable image that will live on long after you no longer exist. You created something very very special.

Anyone know if its possible to get a print of this signed by the artist?

This comes praised with good reason. I really enjoy the monster's asymmetrical look; this adds to its inhumane nature, and fear of the unknown.

Of course, the teddy bear resonates a powerful feeling, too.

And now, a haiku
"The Guardian"
Defiant and brave
The hero has but one cause
I will not fail her

I just saw this today, and now I have a new favorite artist. Congrats on the movie nod. Don't sign off without at full creative control in writing.

This is not a haiku.
Meeka-Moo Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yea it is, a haiku goes 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables

"Defi-ant and brave
The he-ro has but one cause
I will not fail her"

Awesome bit.  Iirc, I first saw this grouped with a handful of similarly Teddy Bear protector works.  Cool to see the source.

I love this image so much but have seen it with the caption under it
Protecting small children from monsters-under-the-bed since 1902.

here is a link to what I am seeing and wondering if you would consider modifying the original to in clude the caption below??…

I already ordered the original but would definately order a larger image if this caption was available with it.

Ten years. Ten years and this simple piece is still loved and resonates with so much.

The simplest of things can stave off unspeakable horror and bring happiness.

I loved this when you first posted it years ago and I still love this.
Was very excited that a movie may come out of this and looking forward to it. I hope it can capture the hearts of many.

I found this image used on a post in facebook, without credit, so I took a while to track you down.  I love it.  I am just starting my own blog - I write short stories and some longer ones  as well as opinion pieces - and I would very much like to use this picture to illustrate a post. May I have your permission?  I would of course give full credit and a link to here so people could buy prints, if they wish.
