The Duke vs. Cowboys & Aliens

July 8, 2011

They're here!

I'm referring to the juggernaut of Cowboys & Aliens movie trailers playing now and building up to the July 29th opening of the long awaited mega-Western.

Received a packet of movie posters from Courtney Joyner, who is writing a feature on the many genre mash-ups which includes Western classics like "Billy the Kid vs. Dracula" and "Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter." The entire feature points up the fact that there really is nothing new under the sun.

Dan The Man Harshberger has designed a very cool cover head which emulates and expands on the Cowboys & Aliens movie logo. This sucker literally explodes off the page. I need to get my illustration nailed. Did a fourth study this morning, concentrating on the Duke's likeness:

Still needs work, but getting closer to what we want. Wish this painting gig would get easier and I could mature into a proficient person. Gee, I wonder what ol' Engelbart has to say about this?

"The rate at which a person can mature is directly proportional to the embarrassment he can tolerate."
—Doug Engelbart
