Please stop by and take a peek at the selection of artwork and photographs that range from the documentation of the two Kodiak bear cubs to original and reproduction prints.
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.

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.

The artwork showcased at the iMAGiNETHAT Art Studio ranges from abstract paper sculptures, charcoal drawings and original prints and collages to more realistic compositions of feathers, leaves and dragonflies.

There are original prints and mixed media that represent the more tech savvy personality. These compositions are created from segments of computer hardware and have titles that captures the essence of  the materials and/or process of which they are created from, for example; Netscape and Etched In Time.DSC_0106

If you love bears, I have some wonderful greeting cards, coasters, photographs and photographic books of  Kodiak bear cubs.

The hot wire that’s been protecting the observation window located in the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit area have been removed!  About two months ago the hot wire was placed around all the observation windows to prevent Munsey and Boda from licking and eating the sealant placed around the new observation  windows.   Now that a new protective coating has been applied to the original  sealant the cubs are free to interact once again with all Wildwood Zoo guests.

I often wonder what is going through the minds of both the child and the Kodiak cub while they’re  sharing a hug.  This is Munsey sharing a hug with a young Zoo guest early Monday morning around 8:30 am.

The cubs love to interact with the zoo staff while they’re cleaning the glass of the observations windows.

Casandra ( pictured above ) informed me that a few weeks ago Munsey and Boda had found a raccoon in the Bear Woods.  Needless to say, the raccoon turn out to be an additional snack for the cubs that day.

Munsey  and Boda now weigh 400 to 423 pounds. The cubs are now 20 months old and Munsey  weighs in at 400 pounds, while Boda’s weight is 423 pounds. These photographs were taken on Monday October 2nd.
