Peace Bear

In 2019 I entered a design for the ‘Bears of Sheffield’ sculpture trail.

The concept was a bear with Peace written in languages to represent the communities of Sheffield.

I researched and carefully represented the diverse languages. My design and hand lettering skills have developed since this proposed design but I feel there is value in sharing the bear concept now, and the colour palette choice I made feels apt for the present time.

Stories of people having to store their two metre bear through the lockdowns, as the launch was delayed a year, reduced my disappointment at my design not being successful.

Sharing this message of peace and hoping for this invasion to cease.
