A little warmer today, but still quite brisk. Started a fire in my wood stove in the studio and that felt good. Whipped out a Twilight Rider study before I went into work:
Abby and I are finishing the layout for Paul Andrew Hutton's cover story on the Charles Portis classic True Grit, and, of course how the two movies compare and contrast. Really an excellent piece. Now it goes down to our art director, Dan Harshberger, so he can spin his magic on the piece. Dan did a very nice cover of both Roosters leering out at us. Going to be sweet.
Need to switch gears and go an illustration of The Great Western riding a donkey and exclaiming, "Who wants a wife with $15,000 and the biggest leg in Mexico?!" I Googled women on donkeys and got some great reference.
