Do you have it in poster form? I saw one that had the caption, "Teddy Bears, protecting innocent children from monsters under the bed since 1916." I am not sure of the year, but I would like to purchase it. My name is Maria Ladd, at Thank you very much.

When I first looked at it, I didn't see the teddy bear, so I thought the monster was tucking the kid into bed. Still sweet, either way ❤

So this is the original source, I presume? Tagging Pettyexpo for reasons he'll probably understand, and favoriting so that I can find it again (it was pure luck that it managed to pop up as What's Hot today)

Hi! I'm making a small role playing game for my family about children toys battling nightmares and I want to ask permission to use your art as a cover! (I've never asked for permission to use someone else's art before so I'm not sure what to blabber on about asdfghjkl but yeah, your picture really fit the game well).

-Regards, Dan

I saw the link to this on a post that My dear friend Dominique Lefalle created.   I have always adored this picture.  I saw it once before.   You have a new watcher now.  or I should say "again".  apparently DA removed you from My watch list for some odd reason

The creature has a very interesting design! I used to draw monsters when I was younger as well and sculpt them with clay and foil. The eyes being within the jawbone area is a design feature that I have never seen before and adds a little bit more of a creepy value to it. The stark difference in texture between the teddy bear, the monster, and the dreamer is what especially got my attention. I would not call this stupid at all! Beautifully done. ^^

I just came across this from a Twitter post.  It made me cry.  Poignant and sweet.

This. This is what a teddy bear's real purpose is. Really cute.

Would you mind if I did a children’s book with this concept?

I love this piece! Just an FYI, Jason Borrego is using your art to promote a book he's selling. I noted he didn't credit you as the artist (sad). Don't know if you have an agreement with him or not, but you really deserve credit for your work.…

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:…

Anyone know if its possible to get a print of this signed by the artist?
MamaJarly Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2018   Writer
ask the artist directly.   I'm sure that he could accommadate you.  most artists do. 
SlySuavity Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital 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.
