September 2, 2003,
Got into office at eight this morning. Someone broke in last night and stole our petty cash box ($120). Called the sheriff. They were late showing up because of a plane crash on Cave Creek Road. Evidently two killed taking off from Carefree Aiport. No other details yet.

Had a very nice weekend, painting and drawing. Really feels good to draw everyday. I’m almost done with a big overview of the McSween fight. It is too late to go in the mag, but will appear in the book. Probably the best illustration I have ever seen depicting what it looked like when the Kid and others jumped into the back yard of the McSween house and made their way to the gate. Did about three different sessions, layering in smoke. Very hard to do, but the atmosphere is very close to my mind’s eye picture. Only thing hanging out is Morris getting it at the gate. Everyone else is in and looking good.

Took off Buddy’s neck cone on Saturday night. Deena came out and did the honors. He is one happy dude. Taking him for a walk on a leash is like trying to hold on to the Hindenburg with a bad air leak.

Watched Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedian twice this weekend. Really enjoyed it. It’s a documentary of Jerry building a new standup act. He retired all of his old material about three years ago and started from scratch. Really insightful. The doc featured an up and coming kid named Orny Adams who was supposed to be the next big thing, but the doc was filmed in 2000 and I’ve never heard of him. I wonder what happened to him? Did he make a bad career move like getting into drugs or publishing?
