Leanin Tree

Pearls Cafe (1)


… one I did on a beer box flap for my friends Gwen and Corne from The Cocky Rooster Bar!


One from a few weeks ago @ The Menger Bar in ol’ San Antone … across the alley from The Alamo!


The first cassette tapes I ever bought were Merle Haggard from Columbia Records and Tapes.

I have put lots of quarters in jukeboxes across these United States over the years in honky tonks, beer joints and dives.

I can say that I have probably played more Merle Haggard tunes than any other artist.

I have been thinking about what The Cartoon Cowboy would draw as a memorial to Merle.

So here it is. (Please feel free to Share)

R.I.P. Merle !

Merle Haggard

2015 was a great year for The Cartoon Cowboy …

JP Rankin was inducted into The Cowboy Cartoonists International and also had his artwork accepted by Leanin’ Tree Cards for publication.

The first two cards are now available and four more will be released in July 2016.

They are available now at the link below …

You can also find Leanin’ Tree Cards in Tractor Supply stores.|1_5650||0|48|0|0|0
