Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox

Here's my imagining of the folk legend Paul Bunyan, who to me is the symbol of hearty strength and hard work.

In designing my rendition of Babe the Blue Ox, I imagine him to be generally playful and docile being Bunyan's loyal wilderness companion. But because it is the wilderness, I also imagine Babe can be fierce when necessary.


  1. MGM, needs to cross promote with the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show the biggest name in America in regards to Paul Bunyan, for their movie Bunyan and Babe. In the last two weeks the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show has reached over 70 million people in the USA alone! Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Shows has the biggest notoriety, over 2,000,000 million reasons why on the internet alone!

  2. I can totally see the Disney influence in Babe up there. I loved that cartoon version as a kid and it has definately influenced my envisioning of these characters as an Illustrator myself nowadays.
