June 18, 2007
Well, here it is, my 4,000th sketch, @ six a day since November 12th, 2006, without missing a day.

Getting looser and the bending of form is coming right along with the shading getting more dynamic and fresh. As I have not so modestly admitted, drawings talk to me, and several characters spoke loud and clear. Bottom, center, is Isaiah Mays, the Tenth Horse Gunfighter. I dig his swagger and slick-down outfit (totally an accident). Now there's an Old West character I would love to see in a graphic novel. Of course, the usual suspects are here: Curly (bottom, right), Mickey (bottom, left) and Beauty (center, small). And Tom Horn, top. All in all, a decent page of sketches to commemorate this milestone. Next stop 5,000, which will be half-way to my goal.
