September 30, 2008
My dogs get out of the slammer today. Got some treats for them.

Finished two more illustrations last night and this morning:

This is Mickey Free, at left, saying to the Apache Kid, "Be careful Cousin, we are living in a time when even right is wrong." To which the Kid replies, "We aren't cousins."

Ouch! In Apache culture, someone is called Cousin as a sign of affection. Unfortunately, the Kid is under the influence of Curly and Tulapai. And by the way, the Mickey Free line is a direct quote from the mixto himself.

And, here, finally, is an image I have been wanting to do for some time and finally made the time this morning before I went into the office. It's of Remington with his editor at Harper's Weekly. I think I nailed The Man Who Knew The Horse:

I was trying for that old style illustration that was popular in 1890-1920 magazines. Kind of groovy, no?

"Bravo. The only thing missing is the soundtrack."
