January 13, 2004
I’ve been cleaning my office and throwing out a ton of old magazines (yes, it’s the anti-clutter seminar).

Our new Fraud issue is going out to subscribers this week. The cover is quite strong (see home page) and for that I thank you. Many of you voted for it and you were dead on. It was the right call.

Also trying to get the TW Maniac illustration going. Finally got some sketches going yesterday afternoon. I’ll post progress here.

Mo from the Westerns Channel called and said the True West Moment segments look good. She’s Fed Exing me four of them to look at. Need to tweak the music a bit, she told me. Anxious to see them. They start running in February.

Here’s a scan of the Spanish magazine Clio, which is their version of True West. Really strong layout, and where did they find that image of Tom Mix (bow-legged with two guns)? Take a good look at it, as a version of it may show up on the next TW cover.

I’ve really been enjoying The New Yorker lately, The excellent writing is the ticket, but I don’t want to get too smug about it (my son Tomas sent me the following quote):

"I believe virtually everything I read so I think that makes me more of a selective human being than someone who doesn’t believe anything."
