Paul Bunyon

This week's Toon Club topic is "Tall Tales". I thought it'd be fun to show Paul Bunyon and Babe at the North Pole after they retired. This is an alternate coloring of the post, the original can be found at Toon Club.

Awesome! Paul Bunyan looks so delighted with his present :)

Very cool, Adrian. I like the colors on the Toon Club one better, I think... probably because they're more like the Mary Blair craziness that I associate with Paul Bunyan. Those giant cliffs make them seem a little small for how huge they're supposed to be. I wonder what would happen if you dropped those down a bit... aside from totally screwing up the balance and composition. I'm an idiot... ignore me.

This is the coolest!

Sarah and Shane - Thanks for the feedback. I think I will lower the glaciers in the background, I think you're right. Look for it soon!

I love the idea of these two being such good friends that they exchange gifts, etc. What a great moment. Funny idea, and fabulous illustration. Way to go Adrian.
