GOAT RIDERS in the Sky

I would have to say this is probably one of my most popular cartoons.

I spent about 16 days in a row at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo with a good friend of mine, Rick McCumber and every day about every two hours “The Arbuckle Boys” would come on stage and sing “Ghost Riders in the Sky”.

After a deluge of this one day Rick said … “hey cardboard cowtoonist I got and idea” … and the rest they say is history.

“GOAT RIDERS in the Sky” was created

This is a piece that I did in 2007 and it is a favorite of mine. The color was done digitally and was one of my first complete pieces done this way.

Prints are available in 11″ x 17″ and 8.5″ x 14″
