The Alaska Wood Bison has been in the news up around this neck of the woods, and so popped up on the cartoon radar and was added to the eternal mix of random topics percolating away in the subconscious. The tipping point was one day while on an field-trip expedition with a Beginning Drawing class to the Museum of the North (part of the semesterly pen + ink assignment to gather reference sketches of textured artifacts & miscellaneous critters) I did a buffalo as a demo. It being Wednesday I ad-libbed a coffee cup and the accompanying caption.
That in turn beget a doodle, which eventually gave birth to another panel. Funny how these things work. Funny: How these things work.
