Seventy Years of Smokey Bear

This year marks the 70th Anniversary of our favorite fire-fighting bear, Smokey. 
In 1944 a young bear cub was found in a burnt out forest and grew up to be the National Forestry Services' symbol of fire prevention.
The above sketch was to be used for another idea I had for Smokey but it seemed appropriate for my birthday wishes.
Happy Birthday Smokey!

Happy 80th Birthday, Donald Duck

This year marks the 80th Anniversary of Donald Duck. Donald made his first appearance in the cartoon short "The Wise Little Hen" on June 9, 1934.

Above I used a pose that Carl Barks used for his Dell Four Color story "The Golden Helmet". I used this because I always thought Barks handled him best.
