Babe-y bluePaul Bunyan and Babe, Bemidji, MN

Bemidji Paul Bunyan sketch by Chandler O'Leary

There are a lot of Paul Bunyan statues out there (and I’ve sketched a bunch of them, as you’ll see in the coming months), but I honestly think there are none finer than the magnificent Paul and Babe way up nort’ in Bemidji, Minnesota. In fact, I may go so far as to say these guys are among America’s best-ever roadside attractions.

But that’s just me. How about you—do you have a favorite Paul Bunyan? Bangor? Portland? Muncie? Klamath? Brainerd? If you could pick any Paul, which would you choose?

    I don’t have a favorite but there is a HUGE Paul and his ox at the tress of Mystery in northern CA, just south of the Oregon border. Love your drawings!
