Gift of the Artist
A grayscale illustration of a fat cartoon bear positioned horizontally across the image with no visible means of support. The bear's arms reach towards the top of the picture. There are dark-toned gloves on its hands. Its face is turned away, obscuring its expression. Above the head of the bear to the left is an unshaded line drawing of a belt and holster with a cartoony pistol. The belt curves as if it is being worn around a body, but no body is visible. There are two wavy, doodled vertical lines on the lower left, one thinner than the other. The letters of the alphabet are hand-printed in lower case in the top right corner, with the letters “h” and “e” written twice. A line of numbers from 1 to 9 (followed by 0 instead of 10) has been written above the letters (written by Andrea Noonoo).
