Tag Archive: Munsey and Boda Merchandise


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.
My new book “BRANCH MANAGEMENT” can be purchased this Saturday, December 16th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the Marshfield Mercantile located at 355 S. Central Ave. Marshfield, WI. I will also have the rest of my Kodiak Bear merchandise (coasters, journals, cards and books) as well as my limited edition greeting cards, art journals and a selection small original prints / collages. 
Prices range from $3.00 to $30.00. Please stop by and take a peek at the section of artwork and photographs that range from the documentation of the two rescued Kodiak bear cubs to original and reproduction prints. 20171106_195341
“BRANCH MANAGEMENT” offers the reader 20 pages of photographs documenting the growth and development of Marshfield’s beloved Kodiak bear cubs (Munsey and Boda).  The photographs depict the close relationship the Kodiak bears have with trees.

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.

 

 

 

 

Here’s a peek at some of the updated Kodiak bear products I’ve produced for the upcoming holiday season!

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) 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.
