How did you make this work:
At the beginning, I had this image in my head: a giant bear, sleeping alone in winter time, as lonely as mountains in winter. One day, an unknown little thing arrives at his back, lightly sticks to his fur, the bear is intrigued. That was how I imagined a relationship start between a giant bear and a tiny talkative green thing. Woodblock print, collage, digital drawing are used as techniques here.
