OK, I know, I know, I am supposed to be a serious Surrealist Artist: first I fill my gallery with photographs, now I am doing cartoons.
Well, this was for the retirement of a friend and former colleague. Working for Canadian Pacific Railway, a lot of funny tales can be told. While working one night in the Railyard, Neil ran into a bear while inspecting a coaltrain. He startled the poor critter, and both fled in opposite directions.
Bears are attracted to spilled grain, which is quite a problem in the Rocky Mountains National Parks. Environmental clean-ups are conducted on a regular basis to keep incidences with wildlife in check.
SO NEIL - HAPPY RETIREMENT, RUSH RIGHT IN, YOU'D HAVE A BALL!
