“When we dream, our souls travel to another world. A magical world that’s connected to many other worlds. Mostly beautiful and peaceful, but there also lies dangerous ones. Malicious beings and souls of the wicked reside there, sometimes following dreamers who stray out too far in hopes of severing the connection to their body and taking possession of it!
Fortunately, there are other beings that guard us. They destroy any evil that crosses their path. Some people were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these guardians, describing them as having the appearance of a small animal, almost bearlike. Inspired by these encounters, people created the teddy bear. Made to resemble these protectors and to remind us that we are safe.”

I want to thank you for visiting the site. Here’s a little bit about me and where the characters came from.
I loved drawing as a kid. My nickname growing up was “Bear”. As you can probably guess, I drew a lot of bears! A few of my favorite things to draw were: myself as a character called “Bearman”, armored bears, bear superheroes, and a small big headed bear with big claws. I imagined different worlds they would live in and big monsters they would fight. Well, the main character for Not Teddy Bears™ is that big headed bear, except… He won’t be a bear this time. He is a bearlike entity from another world. And now that I’m an adult, I can give it more of a mature theme.
When I drew this character back in elementary school, I never thought I’d do anything with him. Growing up, I was never told that being creative with writing or drawing could be a career. I was told to be a doctor, lawyer, engineer, or something along those lines. So I put my drawings, stories, and imagination to the side… As I grew older, I realized that I should’ve followed my passions. I’m happy to say that I’m going to take a chance now. I’m bringing my childhood character back! I hope you guys enjoy it. Whether this goes anywhere or not, I’m just glad I finally got a chance to do it. Thank you for your support!
