Have you've had a chance to take a look at Bid4Bears? The Artist Power Campaign only started yesterday and there are many bears, hares, lions and other critters available. Some are silly, some are gorgeous, some are traditional. Even if you're not inclined to bid on anything, you should just take a look (no registration necessary) to see what artist bears are all about. Some of the work will blow you away.
This is Willis, my first auction of this campaign, and he's available now.
