I am a huge, huge fan of Jody Bergsma Designs. She is an artist located in the Pacific Northwest....Bellingham, WA to be exact...and her work is featured at Ben Franklin Craft Stores up there. I did a whole colouring book of hers, I have a Sagittarius magnet and also these two stickers on my car.
This one is especially significant as it features PNW animals with Native American/First Nations designs for the wolf, bear and eagle. I am desperate to replace this sticker because I am going to have to get a new car eventually and I need to have this on whatever new car I get.
Jody did a beautiful illustration of Sasquatch with some other PNW animals and featured it on Facebook. I was pleased that this was taken seriously and not done as a goof or 'silly' type of picture. She asked people to submit titles for the picture and the title with the most 'likes' would get a print. I thought of one right away and I checked the comments to see if anyone else thought of it too. To my surprise, no one did. So I typed 'Guardians of the Forest'. To my utter shock, it got well over 200 likes and my title was selected for Jody's print! What an honour to title a picture by my fave artist!!! WOW!!!
Please be sure to visit her website, Bergsma Gallery Press, to view more of her beautiful and charming works of art. I'll be framing and hanging it in a place of honour. Thank you SO MUCH Jody!!!!
