King Panpan: A 365 Bear Illustration Project by Julius Santiago

Julius Santiago, a graphic designer and Illustrator in San Francisco, created King Panpan to encourage himself to create more artwork. He created one bear illustration each day during 2010, complete with excellent puns—Bearthday Girl, Rocky Bearboa, Bear in Sheep's Clothes, Brownbeard, Bearken, Che Guebeara and the Prince of El Bear.

Very true to the graphic design and creative field, he says "Drawing them is the easy part. The hard part is coming up with 365 ideas." Julius leveraged social media for ideas, calling out to twitter followers to submit requests and suggestions.
