Too Close For Comfort? MoJo's Acclaimed Nature Cartoonist Returns!

Hello beloved Mountain Journal peeps. Our popular cartoonist John Potter is back and so is MoJo—now entering our fifth year!—after a brief summer sojourn. John has been away on hiatus making fine art paintings for the autumn exhibition season. But he returns here with another mirthful visual commentary about the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem as it relates to the wider wild West. This Potter original was created as a coloring contest. 
Print off the image, color it up, send it into us at this link by Sept. 30, 2022 and we'll ask a team of grade schoolers to judge the artistry. 

If they pick yours among the top three, we'll send you a free autographed copy of our founder's new book "Ripple Effects: How to Save Yellowstone and America's Most Iconic Wildlife Ecosystem." And feature your entry here. Meantime, we're proud to say Johnny is back. Have fun.
