About this project

Hello. My name is Mark, and I'm a graphic designer. This project is all about fun and  capturing the hilarity of bears. Yep, bears. Ever since visiting Yellowstone National Park as a little boy, I've loved their majesty and playfulness. Now I'm all grown up and love seeing my 6 year old son laugh uncontrollably at my drawings. He critiques my work and gives me lots of ideas that have jelled into these bearious illustrations (that's supposed to be punny).

About Bear Posters.

Although I can easily create these prints in 8x10 format on my color printer, they would look awesome in the professional 24 x 36" poster format.

I want to kickstart this project so that I can use the best materials and printing processes around. My intention is to create large poster prints that will add life to your room or office walls.

These large poster prints will feature my original bear illustrations in funny situations and a lot of bear puns, of course.

Got a funny bear pun? Send me a note and I'll add it to the mix.

Bears are both funny and beautiful and my art spans the range.

Pledge $79 or more and you'll get a T-shirt with the bear print of your choice!

Why I Need Your Support

I really need about $12,000 to set up a print shop, but that sounded like a bit much – I know it’s tough times out there. But I hope with the support of smart, animal-friendly people like you, we can scrap together enough to cover printing and illustration costs. Any additional funds will help me prepare to debut Bear Posters at Art Galleries in DC and NYC.

Here’s how you can help:

Make a pledge. Any amount helps – thank you! And you can be one of the first to own an original Bear Poster.

Tell a friend. Everyone does (or at least they should) love animals and love to laugh. If Bear Posters makes you laugh, chances are your friends have similar sophisticated taste. Please send them to our Kickstarter campaign!

Like us on Facebook. Social media is the easiest way to spread the word.

Suggest your own posters. Can you 'bearly' contain your enthusiasm? Share your funny ideas and I could end up naming a collection in your honor

On behalf of, thank you!

Giving Back

At, we hope our posters not only make people smile, but also help give back to our forest friends. So with each poster purchase, we’ll be donating to forest-friendly charities. Check out our website for more info or to suggest a worthy animal charity.



  • I'm currently supporting the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). I've created a take action button available through the website. If you can think of other worthy charities that benefit bears and forest creatures please let me know.
