Bear With Me Book - Illustration by Ben Mantle

Bear With Me is an incredible picture book project conceived by illustrator Jason Ruddy. The idea is that each page of a story about a bear and his travels is illustrated by a different artist as the work in progress physically travels to the home of each one. The idea is that the finished book will serve as not only a charming story but rich feast of artwork from a collection of some of the finest children's book illustrators working today.

There are lots of plans afoot for a print and digital edition of the book along with a touring exhibition and all the money raised by the project will be donated to charity.
