Category: Merchandise- Munsey and Boda


My first choice for this book was KODIAK STRIPPER  but I thought that might give people the wrong idea about what might be hiding between the covers of my book!
The Kodiak bears are very good at stripping the bark off the tree’s and the cubs have  even destroyed a few tree’s in both the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit and the Bear Woods Habitat Area.

If your in the mood for watch Munsey and Boda climbing 30 plus feet into the tree tops, check out this video taken in June 2017!

Boda is the bear highest in the tree tops with Munsey just beneath his brother.

Remember that you can purchase my new book dedicated to the Kodiak Bears and (their adventures climbing tree’s ) on Dec. 16th, at the Marshfield Mercantile located at 355 S. Central Ave. Marshfield, WI. More details will be announced in the near future!

Munsey and Boda continue to flourish under the care of the Marshfield Wildwood Zoo Staff and the watchful eyes of the Marshfield community.  As of December 1st, 2017 Munsey’s weight has increased to 680 lbs, while Boda’s weight is now 760 lbs.

My next Kodiak bear book is title “Branch Management”, and offers the reader an opportunity to observe the cubs growth and development focused around their many activities involving the tree’s located in both the Bear Woods and the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit!  I will be selling my Kodiak Bear merchandise at the Marshfield Mercantile on Saturday December 16th.

Watching Boda try to reach for a little dangling  tree branch, makes me wonder if he’ll  take to the tree tops again in March of 2018.  Many of the bears favorite climbing trees were cut down in late October and early November.  So the Bear Woods Habitat area has many enrichment options for Munsey and Boda to explore this winter.

I began documenting the Kodiak bear cubs through photography in October of 2015 at the Grand Opening of the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit.  Since October 2015, I’ve taken thousands of photographs and have begun charting the growth and development of the bears using a graphing format.  This information along with the photographs is used when I’m writing my blog and books and is also shared with the zoo staff at Wildwood Zoo.

Below are some images of collages and prints and drawings inspired by two Kodiak bear cubs that reside at the Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  The series of artwork is titled “WALKABOUT”.

(above) Mixed media/ collage/ assemblage  The background and bear formations are original collagraph prints , the foreground is created from hand made sculpted paper, to create the feel of a wooded rocky terrain.

(above) This original collagraph print was created using multiple collagraph plates, each inked and pulled through the press separately and water color was added to increase the intensity of the colors.

(above) Title: “Munsey”   Charcoal drawing of a Kodiak bear cub. This drawing was created with powdered charcoal.  The powdered charcoal was added and subtracted with a feather.  The feather was especially useful when creating the longer tufts of fur on the bear.

Many of these images are also for sale as a reproduction print and greeting cards.
