People tend to think these strips are “bitter” and “grumpy” a lot of the time, but I just want y’all to know that I have a LOT of fun drawing those types of expressions. I find humor in conflict and it’s entertaining to me to see a character trying to deal with a problem unsuccessfully. I like playing around with different ways to draw a character looking peeved or angry, and it makes this job highly enjoyable for me.

So while the “character” of the artist bear is frequently angry and bitter and pissed off, the artist (me) behind the scenes is smiling and having a grand time.

The fact that the blue bear is "grumpy" a lot brings back childhood memories.

That's true, just like expressions of disgust and fear, anger is pretty fun to draw since you can draw it in various ways. X3 Great job. :+fav:
