  1. I believe the artist is Kent Neffendorf, working in Los Angelus, known as ‘Kent’.

    1. Thank you very much for the information. You are correct; the artist is Kent Neffendorf. Although I could not find the ‘park rangers’ image on any current sites, Neffendorf’s “Lumberjacks” figures were almost identical. Thank you again. Stay safe and healthy. My best wishes to you- Charles Knaack
