Just re-read Phillip Pullmans ‘His Dark materials’ and this reminds me of Lyra and Iorek Byrnison (King of the Bears) who becomes one of her best friends.

Beautifully drawn as usual.

I guess no one has told the poor child that this wonderfully soft white bear is very dangerous indeed. he he he. This is just wonderful. I think I really like the shading here. The soft violet is very sweet. Great illustration.
