Worked all weekend on paintings and illustrations for the Top Secret Project. Haven't been able to even think about it for the past two months because of CGIII.
More and more, I've been getting manuscripts and books from struggling authors sent to me. They want me to "take a look" and make a pronouncement. Are they any good? Is there a place for them in the biz? This makes me very uncomfortable. And as I responded to one this morning:
"While I like to encourage anyone who is attempting to keep history and the Wild West alive, I'm not real comfortable judging your efforts. I'm not much of a writer (seeing myself more as a cartoonist-illustrator who only developed writing out of self-defense).
"You can send me the book, but I won't promise that I'll have anything constructive to say. I don't mean to sound negative, but I don't want to give you false hope, either."
"The naked truth is always better than the best dressed lie."
