The Bear takes the Bull by WalterRingtail
The Bear takes the Bull
Moscato, the bull, doesn't like bears at all and challenges Rusty to a public wrestling match. Rusty, tired of Moscato's attitude accepts the challenge. Unfortunately for Moscato, Rusty proved to be more than a match for the powerful bull and gets the smack down of his life!

I originally created Moscato as a symbolic adversary relating to the state of the economy, you know, the bear and bull markets. Considering the recent economic events in China and the huge drops at the New York Stock Exchange, I thought the timing was perfect! 8D

This Land is Your Land by WalterRingtail
This Land is Your Land
After I made my 4th of July drawing, only a little more than a month and a half from this post, I recorded many patriotic songs on to my phone from Rhapsody and my favorite was "This Land is Your Land" by Woody Guthrie.

I just love the song because it describes America in a beautiful way, it includes redwood forest, diamond deserts, fog lifting, and it is just so fun and inclusive. It's what America is supposed to be!

So in honor of this song, I decided to make a drawing about and how my bear, Rusty, is describing all of this to his friends. It's just a cute symbolic picture that describes some of the best physical elements of America.

It goes like this:
This land is your land, This land is my land,
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters;
This land was made for you and Me.

As I went a-walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me that golden valley
This land was made for you and me.

I roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts;
All around me a voice was a-sounding;
This land was made for you and me.

Chisel, the Labor Day Beaver! by WalterRingtail
Chisel, the Labor Day Beaver!
This is Chisel the Beaver here to let you know that since you work hard to make a living then you have the right to celebrate what makes America function! Without You and the rest of the labor force out there we can not move forward and make America a place worth living in! Thank your lucky beaver for this special celebration! Happy Labor Day!

I just uploaded this to Zazzle and you can find it on t-shirts here!…
Ticklish Dingo Buried at the Beach by WalterRingtail
Ticklish Dingo Buried at the Beach
After a day surfing at the beach Ringo's Uncle Fang asked his girlfriend, Elizabeth, and best friend, Razortooth, who came along with him, to bury him in sand. Fang only asked that they bury him as deep as they like and to leave his head and feet out. They did have a lot of fun burying him in the sand and Razortooth even added a nice sand castle on top for decoration. Uncle Fang began wiggling his feet around and whistling in the air. When Elizabeth notice this she began tickling his feet sending Uncle Fang into hysterics as he laughed like he hadn't so much since he was a pup, though he kind of expected this, though it drove him crazy with laughter and plenty of squirming, he had no idea that Razortooth was planning on dropping an earthworm in his ear! 8D

I knew about your Rocket Raccoon page before I started following the one I did on facebook. The one who ran the FB page, Andrew, passed away last August, but he once brought up your page as being older than his, which is true! Anyway, you have a great style, kind of reminds me of Dr. Suess, but edgier! 8D
