This has been a crazy month. Too many crises and too many changes to even remember to post. I can't believe Christmas has already come and gone. gosh 2012 will be here in less than a week. I was sorting throw my stuff and I found these two on my shelf getting dusty.
I made these two musical bears and their pianos after a Billy Joel and Elton John concert I saw almost 10 years ago. Basically at that point I mostly made teddy bears. Billy Joel has always been my favorite singer, with Elton John also in the top 10 so this concert was a big thrill for me.
I really wanted to be sure I remembered just how much I enjoyed it, so I made a teddy to represent each. During the shop they had their pianos lined up end to end like this, so I have always displayed them like this.

In case you can't tell, Billy Joel is the one on the left, a grey bear with a black jacket and beard. Elton John of course has his sunglasses and his jacket is dusted with glitter. To be honest, it doesn't matter if anyone sees the men behind the teddies besides me. I added details like Billy's fingers on the keyboard and droopy eyes. I admit I put a lot more attention in his bear.
