Going to see True Grit tonight

December 6, 2010
Worked hard this weekend trying to wrap up a series of paintings before departing this Thursday for Cowboy Christmas in Vegas. Was supposed to go last week, but last minute changes in our cover story forced me to change schedules with another staff member (Sheri Riley).

Going to feature Mickey Free and his 16-hands-high mammoth jack in the next installment of Graphic Cinema. Here is the Mick, astride that mammoth jack:

As the Old Vaqueros are fond of saying, "When a mammoth jack pins back his ears, best hunt for cover."

Looks like I'm going to get a sneak peek at the Coen brothers' True Grit tonight in Scottsdale.

Also whipped out a scene of a bruja (Mexican witch) visiting her lover in the Versailles Room (this is what happens when a Kingman cartoonist visits Paris, France):

And, here's another scene of the burned-out desert the Mickster has to cross to get to El Muerte:

Worked hard all weekend, but that's actually a bit of a reach because work is only work if you'd rather be someplace else, and I love doing this. Gee, I wonder what ol' Coward has to say about this?

"Work is much more fun than fun."

—Noel Coward
