Go Ahead, Make a Wish... by torsoboyprints Go Ahead, Make a Wish... by torsoboyprints
Hey guys, I've received several print requests for this thing. I've had it as a print in my shop for quite some time now, so please drop by and check it out! [link]

The image is 6'9" tall on canvas that's about 7'4" tall. Relief print with screened color and painted color (blue). This is part of my ongoing undergraduate print series that deals with the issues that children's stories/TV programs don't address. The overall notion here is that most children's programming consists of promoting good habits, good morals, good good good. However, in order for something to be understood as "good," there has to be something bad for it to contrast with. this particular print somewhat deviates from that because I simply wanted to exaggerate the "bear" part of the Care Bears.

2009 David Reimer. Do not use without permission.

Just wanted to pop in and tell every one BIG THANK YOU for making this such a popular print! It's currently the most popular woodblock print on DeviantArt, and currently in the #3 spot as most popular print on DeviantArt. It couldn't have achieved that (plus that Daily Deviation) without you all. So thanks! (6/16/11)

Go Ahead, Make a Wish... by ~torsoboyprints is a bear-sized print that takes the "care" out of the CareBears for a second look at children's icons. Grrreat! ( Featured by stigmatattoo )

Hehe, and there's a whole army of these Bears, not to mention their Cousins, Braveheart Lion or Lotsa Heart Elephant would be quite Interesting to see in Real Life Versions

I'm always amazed at prints this size. Was going to ask how you pulled it but I see you've already answered that below. :) Fantastic!! What type of wood were you carving on?

MDF. Technically more of a composite that a wood.

Why couldn't they have made care bears look like this? This is much cuter.
