It took a while for Theoderek to get his true name. My mom’s had him for a while, and for years he was just “Grey Bear” or Greyling or something like that… which was why I wrote Grey Bear on this drawing. But now he’s Theoderek.
I love the perspective on Theoderek’s pose in this portrait, the touch of blue in his ribbon, and the curve of his little smile.
Have you ever felt that your name wasn’t right, or that you wanted to change it?
