Dixxy Diamond, Part I

April 22, 2011

Got up this morning early and decided to do a concept sketch of a new super hero cowgirl character I am noodling.

Don't ask me how wide that hat brim goes, but it's waayyyyyyy out there. Juni Fisher suggests that it is her foil and helps guide her through the air, as she swoops to and fro. Hmmmmmm, like that.

Working title: Dixxy Diamond: Off The Grid.

Kevin Jarr Update
Mark Boardman points out that funeral arrangements for Kevin Jarre were handled by—The Pearce Brothers—the same LA outfit that handled Wyatt Earp's remains.

Jeff Morey points out that my memory is slipping. The infamous Tombstone "P Photo" incident described in yesterday's post, happened in 1994, the year after our rendezvous when I read Kevin Jarre's script. Still, in my defense, the same group of guys (with an exception or two) went to the Crystal Palace, got real smart, came back to the same Tombstone Boarding House, where I read Kevin Jarre's script.

Still, I'm haunted by the reality of the Oldtimers Syndrome: each time a geezer tells the story, the closer he gets to the center of the stage.

"The only graceful way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can't ignore it, top it; if you can't top it, laugh at it; if you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved."
