"The Moose Wears Running Shoes" was a labor of love for my dear friend, Craig "the Moose" Chambers. It started out as a coloring book idea for kids and I would work on it whenever I had the time. In 2005 Craig was diagnosed with level 4 Melanoma and I was determined to complete this story for him. Craig battled for 3 years and in 2008, the Moose passed away. I managed to complete a paper copy of the book and get it to him when he was hospitalized. His sister read it to him and a few days later he passed. At the funeral she came up to me and thanked me for doing the book and said they gave it to his Mom and everytime she felt sad she would flip through the pages and smile. People who had seen the book came up to me and wanted a copy. So I went on line and self-published the stroy. It became larger than life, kinda like the man it was made for. Craig was a very special person and I miss him very much. Here are some excerpts from the book. Enjoy.
While working on this website and scanning in my drawings I made some additions and improvements on some of the original Moose pages. Now that this site is up and running I went back and edited my "Moose" book and it is now available for purchase. Click here to add to your collection.
