For me, Yellowstone is the National Park that I long to experience. I see such wonderful photos taken of this magical place. Incredibly beautiful sunsets. Awe-inspiring waterfalls, geysers and rivers. Massive Bison, Majestic Elk and the unknown just around the bend.
It’s no wonder that Yellowstone History has been occupied for over 11,000 years. And it’s certainly not a mystery that in 1872 Yellowstone was nominated as the first National Park.

About 3 years ago, I undertook a huge project. I had this thought that I always wanted to do a drawing of buffalo stampeding. This image ran through my mind so often, that I finally found a picture of 3 buffalo running. The picture was ideal, because it wasn’t too dark. That’s a huge drawback when working with black and white images. If it’s too dark, then everything becomes black. That drawing took forever!!!! and when it was done, it came out great. And I thought, “Great, I got buffalo out of my system.”
Then one day while I was waiting for my car to get serviced, I began a little scribble/doodle which turned out to be a buffalo profile. And that came out ok also. Once I sold the doodle, I then was sad to think that I never gave myself over to just one buffalo completely. If I did one buffalo, I wanted it to be a powerful, majestic drawing of the buffalo, reminiscent of Frank McCarthy’s style, only done my way, in black and white.
So I went to take a picture of a buffalo at a local ranch. Once I got the angle I wanted, everything seemed to come out quickly. I am incredibly pleased with the way it came out. Hope you enjoy it! Your comments are definitely appreciated, so please feel free to leave any. 🙂
