Happy 50th, Paddington

Dennis Hwang - Google Doodle: Happy 50th Birthday Paddington Bear (2008)Have you noticed today's Google Doodle, which commemorates the 50th birthday of Paddington Bear by Michael Bond? Dennis Hwang - Google's resident doodler - has added his name to the list of illustrators who have drawn Paddington. In case you can't read the signpost, it points to Peru in one direction and London in another. Dennis has managed to capture the cute essence of Paddington and his tale in one 14Kb graphic! Terrific. He's bringing art to the masses without a grant from Arts Council England and doing a great PR job for Google.

It is absolutely adorable! I would love to get a copy of a print!

Unfortunately a 14Kb GIF would be very fuzzy if blown up to a size suitable for hanging on the wall.

He's a very talented artist. If you search for him in Google or on my blog, you'll find his online gallery of Google Doodles.
