Ink Drawing of a Bear Carving


“Big Bear and Raven” original ink drawing by Gail Niebrugge, to purchase original call for price and availability.

Homer, Alaska, is host to a number of wood carvers. Some use chainsaws, others use chisels and hammer, but whatever the tools the people in town love these sculptures and they are everywhere. One of the most prominent is Big Bear, who resides on the board walk on the Spit and is happily holding a huge wooden halibut with fishing pole in hand, advertising fishing charters. Another frequent Spit visitor are ravens, they are as common as seagulls. I think this little drawing characterizes the artsy, fun, fishing community of Homer perfectly! Homer has often been described as an Alaskan drinking community with a fishing problem.
