Concept Sketch for Tristan the Teddy Bear in Outer Space Early Reader Teddy Bear Tale

Tristan the Teddy Bear in Space

Tristan the Teddy Bear in Space. Art concept by Nick Davis

Tristan and Wilma travel into outer space to help the Man in the Moon stop the Gobbledy-Gobbs from eating his home, because everyone knows the Moon is made from the most delicious of cheese.

For awhile I’ve been playing with the idea of doing a series of early reader Teddy Bear Tales, each one take Tristan on an imaginative adventure from Outer Space to the Depths of the Ocean. Each story would be about 24 pages long, with each page having a simple story sentence with full-page illustrations to tell the story. Based off my first synopsis I’ve produced the above concept image of Tristan the Teddy Bear in space with this Monster catching net. This is all early days stuff, but I wanted to share with you a direction I want to take the Teddy Bear Tales in.
