April 9, 2007
Dave Daiss is up from his ranch, so I treated him to lunch at Tonto Bar & Grill ($25.02 plus $5 tip, biz account). Sat outside on the patio. Beautiful day. Talked quite a bit about promotional efforts for True West. He often buys banner space and rodeo mentions down in his area to promote TW. Dave is a natural promoter and we need him to do even more to get the magazine known.

Got a call from Buckeye Blake and he tells me it doesn't look good in Sumner. The meeting is tonight and the buzz has been quite negative. Evidently, someone from the Lincoln area, specifically, Capitan, got involved and the locals are not happy.

Decided to get crazy, and brought in some Essdee scratchboard to the office. Hadn't touched the stuff in six months, so my first efforts were kind of rusty:

But once I got going, it kind of flows right out of me. These are more studies for the Salt War Insurgent Faces. I especially like the Vato in the lower right corner. That Dude will mess you up.

What helps me is the daily habit of drawing six pictures no matter what. By the way, with these ten and the six I'll do when I get home, it will bring me to 3,558 drawings without missing a day. Amazing (for me).
