A grayscale illustration of a fat cartoon bear with crossed eyes, a wide, open-mouthed smile, and a large nose. The bear’s torso ends below the armpit and a perspective view of its open body has been sketched in lightly without shading or details. The interior of the body appears blank and featureless. The lower half of the body is located some distance away at the bottom of the drawing. The open interior is visible at the top of this body part, and again, the inside area is featureless. Five sharp claws have been drawn at the end of the bear’s one visible arm, but unlike the rest of the hand and arm they are line drawings, not shaded (written by Andrea Noonoo).
