Melvin the Moose

     ​I tried for many years to get pictures of a Michigan moose.  After developing my film from my Isle Royale trips I had lots of pictures of eyes looking out of the woods.  Melvin was drawn from old memories.

Marshmallow the Raccoon

 

     After a long day of rock climbing in Devils Lake Wisconsin, I came back to camp. Sitting on the picnic table was a large raccoon.  He had "acquired" a  brand new bag of marshmallows.  I tried to chase him off, but he sat there and ate every marshmallow. So as long as he was posing, I drew my raccoon pattern.

Sheep
 
     The ram puzzle is modeled after my sheep on the farm. His name was Chuck. When he "went to market" he became ground chuck.
Llama
Rabbit Snake
