"That’s it, lad, your life is worth a dime!"

just spent the last few hours “painting” this. more inspiration from the Life of Scrooge album, mainly the first track this time.

the little Scrooge holding his first dime is from the first chapter of Don Rosa’s The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck where Scrooge earns his first dime and with the help of the ghost of Sir Quackly McDuck, his ancestor, he discovers where to begin his journey.

of course, he see’s Quackly as one of the living but I wanted to draw what we would REALLY see him talking with, which are the shadows of his bones which is how Carl Barks first depicted him in "The Old Castle’s Secret" (1948)

—The Last Sled

glitteringgoldie:

Scrooge McDuck: ”There’s gold, and it’s haunting and haunting
It’s luring me on as of old!
Yet it isn’t the gold that I’m wanting so much as just finding the gold!
It’s the great, big, broad land ‘way up yonder!
The great, broad land ‘way up yonder”

Haunting him as of old
Yet, it ain’t the gold itself
So much as finding the gold
Farewell, White Agony Creek
Farewell, the three long years
Can’t leave behind what’s in this sled

Things we lost
The things we couldn’t share
Another rainbow’s end
Another memory
Fortuna Favet Fortibus!
Hold on to all that’s dear to you
As the last sled to Dawson finally arrives

Scrooge McDuck: ”It’s the forests where silence has lease
It’s the beauty that fills me with wonder!
It’s the stillness that fills me with peace!”

The stillness that fills him with peace
The beauty of the wild
Rainbow’s end with golden dreams
Starlit sky and coffee & beans
Farewell, White Agony Creek
Farewell, the three spring thaws
One day I will return to you

Things we lost
The things we couldn’t share
Another rainbow’s end
Another memory
Fortuna Favet Fortibus!
Hold on to all that’s dear to you
As the last sled to Dawson finally arrives.

—Cold Heart of The Klondike

glitteringgoldie:

Scrooge McDuck: “The final frontier
Of utter solitude
Of wilderness untamed

Into White Agony Creek
The cradle of new hope
Many the spring thaws from home

Oh me! Oh life! Here in the wild
Nothing but two cold Klondike hearts

Charm of a dancehall girl
A true star of the north
Those precious 30 days

A letter in the snow
Love lost yet always there
A burning need of life

Oh me! Oh life! Home in the wild
Nothing but two cold Klondike hearts.”
