February 25, 2010
Working feverishly to finish more True West Moments which will begin running in The Arizona Republic on March 7.

Scanned a half dozen images this morning and then went home for lunch and finished the Martha Summerhays scratchboard, adding a steamboat—The Gila—and a longshoreman (or, in Yuma, would that be a short-shoreman?)

Meanwhile, here are my sketches for Goyathlay and Lt. Ives (at bottom).

Going to be a good one. Lt. Ives (above, giving his summary of the Grand Canyon) was in the army, I believe and he scouted Arizona in the 1850s. So I assume he would be wearing those quasi-service station hats from the Mexican War? Guess I better look up some of this stuff before I get in trouble.
