Hatfight at the Frenchman Corral

October 26, 2010
Back from France just in time to celebrate the fight that launched ten thousand drawings: The Gunfight Behind The OK Corral.

If you saw the photo of me in Martmontre, gazing over my left shoulder, this is one of the Toulouse-Lautrec posters I was mimicking.

Henri did a couple versions of Aristide Bruant, the actual one I'm mimicking is over my shoulder on the Museum sign:

Slightly different angle, but the same deal. My French publisher commented on the above photo, saying I looked exactly like the Lautrec poster, except "he has a bigger hat." This really offended me. No way! Out hatted by a Frenchman? Pa-leeze.

Okay, I know I'm being hat sensitive. Ha.

"If everyone is wearing a big hat, ain't nobody wearing a big hat."
