June 10, 2005
Tweaked the August cover with Dan Harshberger. Added a ‘73 Winchester and the tophead, Also added the copy "The Mysterious Death of Johnny Ringo". Looks quite good. Tom Mix is the cover boy. Quite handsome in a Desperado kind of way.

Finished the Johnny Ringo vs. Himself gunfight artwork today. Whipped out two sepia-toned illustrations of the King of the Cowboys, one in death and the other just prior. Shot everything and ran it up to Foothills Photo at 9:30. Reworked copy to deal with the so-called "mysteries" surrounding Johnny Ringo’s death. Steve Gatto’s new book Johnny Ringo (2002) has the best take on everything and I gave him credit. Gus is laying out the opus, Meghan is editing it even as I type this up (3:27 PM). Need to wrap up everything this afternoon.

Carole is driving me down to Armstrong-Prior for the signing party for the White Hat series at five. We are going from there to Taco Villa for a belated Birthday dinner for Kathy. Both Deena and Thomas are coming.

Allen Barra left me a message and told me to check out his Angelina Jolie piece at I asked him if it’s true that she and Brad Pitt are having an affair and I got this reply:

"look, let's get something straight: Jennifer Anniston filed for divorce on March 25. So anything after that date is legal. I don't know what happened since that, but she told me she didn't [make love to] him while he was married -- and by God I believe her.”
