Following an unfortunate incident this morning when I spilled jam all over my dress, exactly the sort of thing The Bear With Sticky Paws would do, I started to wonder if we are in danger of becoming our characters.

Illustrators and like-minded folk, if you have likenesses to share – we could build up a very funny list!
