Everything you need to know to draw Paul Bunyan!

Paul Bunyan

The Mightiest of All Lumberjacks

Sure there will be some of you who say, he’s no beast, but my argument back would be “No, but he’s a beast of a man!” Plus he’s legendary as F*%k and I live like 6 blocks from the old Berwyn flapjack house that shared the same name, so we’re drawing him!

Given that this battle’s hero is known less for his personal appearance than for his heroic feats and tales of wonder, we’re going to leave the descriptors as “A giant motherf’ing lumberjack, who possessed unparalleled strength and courage”… and jump to a few of the legends that made him famous to give you a bit of context.

So here we go!

  • His footprints made Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes, and he dug Lake Michigan as a drinking hole for his blue ox, “Babe”
  • Created the grand canyon one day by just dragging his axe
  • Mt Hood was just his pile of rock for his campfire
  • His kitchen was so big that people had to skate on the sides of split hogs to grease the pans, and it took 8 men to flip one of his pancakes
  • Paul’s clothing was so large they had to use wagon wheels for buttons
  • It took five storks to deliver him to his parents
  • They used a lumber wagon drawn by a team of oxen as a baby carriage
  • His buds were all named Elmer and they grew their beards so long that they could wrap them around themselves for warmth, and in the spring they sold the hair for mattresses
  • He trained giant ants with tobacco
  • Was a more then capable lumberman
