Additional Details

A copy of the Leanin’ Tree greeting card that features this art work will accompany this lot. Mike Scovel’s caricatures of what Ed Trumble calls “ornery, sweet, cantankerous, bashful, careworn cowboys” have appeared on Leanin’ Tree cards for over twenty-five years. Despite the whimsicality of some of his his subject matter, Scovel is an accomplished artist who also sculpts and paints. Along with Bonnie Shields and Boots Reynolds, Mike Scovel formed Cowboy Cartoonists International in 1992. CCI now has twenty members and the organization mounts several group exhibits every year.
