The Bear and the Two Travelers

"Two men were traveling together, when a Bear suddenly met them on their path. One of them climbed up quickly into a tree and concealed himself in the branches. The other, seeing that he must be attacked, fell flat on the ground, and when the Bear came up and felt him with his snout, and smelt him all over, he held his breath, and feigned the appearance of death as much as he could. The Bear soon left him, for it is said he will not touch a dead body. When he was quite gone, the other Traveler descended from the tree, and jocularly inquired of his friend what it was the Bear had whispered in his ear. "He gave me this advice," his companion replied. "Never travel with a friend who deserts you at the approach of danger."

been almost a month. school's keeping me pretty busy.
this was a thing i did for one of my classes - we were given one of Aesop's fables, and got to do whatever we wanted with it.

original thing 11x17, and now printed/framed and hanging with like, 20 other fables in a library at the moment.

lots more random stuff to come.
