‘Yin Yang Bear Hug’

In July 2016 I saw a photo of a black and a white cat creating a heart with their tails, which inspired my drawing ‘Yin Yang Love Cats.’ I then went on to draw black and white birds creating a yin yang symbol, in the post ‘Yin Yang Birdies.’ (Click the links to see my previous posts)
A year ago I bought an awesome t-shirt on Threadless, ‘Huggers’ by freehand.dk (click here to see it) It has a white bear hugging a black bear, using the black negative space of the t-shirt for the black bear. I think it’s incredibly clever.
Recently a young friend, Sophie wore that same shirt in her smaller size – so cute! It reminded me how much I love the image, and inspired me to draw a similar bear hug, but using the bears to create a Yin Yang symbol.
So ‘Yin Yang Bear Hug’ was born!
