Chocolate tin cub - Galaxy

Meet Galaxy, the next Chocolate tin cub.
A warm rich chocolate brown cub
Pure chocolate perfection!

This beautiful little cub has been adopted.
but I just love him so much, 
that before he goes off to his new home, 
Frappe and I were having a  little play together. 

I have started on Issue 4 of Bear Beautiful
and while it needs a little work, 
I'm loving these 2 for the cover.

What do you think??

I feel a few mini micro size cubs coming up...
