Penman Gary Blehm

Since 1977, sitting in a one room mountain school house near Aspen, Colorado, Gary Blehm has been drawing PENMEN® enjoying outdoor adventure and recreation and music. Gary still has early drawings of PENMEN® outdoors hiking, rafting, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, fishing, camping, playing guitar, music, campfires, tents, backpacking, hang gliding, scuba diving, skydiving, biking, barbecuing, horseback riding, motorcycle riding, hiking, and throwing out peace signs influenced by a hippie that worked for his father at summer camps in the early 1970's.

Penman stands in front of the wall mural from his 1980 dorm room.
Since Gary livedon a mountain ranch, he spent a year and a half of high school at a boarding academy. 

Everyone in the dorm would stop in and point out their favorite PENMEN® characters.
