Seventy Years of Smokey Bear

This year marks the 70th Anniversary of our favorite fire-fighting bear, Smokey. 
In 1944 a young bear cub was found in a burnt out forest and grew up to be the National Forestry Services' symbol of fire prevention.
The above sketch was to be used for another idea I had for Smokey but it seemed appropriate for my birthday wishes.
Happy Birthday Smokey!
