The end of the college season brings a conclusion to Wilbur the Wildcat drawings completed by professional artist Michael Hanaoka.

Mike’s fine work brings back memories of when the Tucson Citizen published cartoons of high school mascots competing against each other on Fridays. Wilbur was also shown getting the upper-hand of his opponent’s mascot.

This site has received a favorable response about the drawings, especially after Arizona pulled off one of its 10 victories.
