November 22, 2011If Oklahoma is called the OK state, then Arizona is the O.K. Corral state. It certainly is the signature image in my mind. It represents all the things I love about the place: drunk dentists, well-armed cowboys, outlaw horses, well heeled pimps and windy dust-ups.
Been noodling a cover idea. You can call this Cubism Meets Ed Mell-ism at The O.K. Corral:
Need more Ed Mell color and geometric shapes, but this could be a good one. Got a good Clanton grimacing sketch, but finished the Earp shooter and came into the office to work on the centennial material. Big meeting at noon today. Jana Bommersbach, Marshall Trimble, Dan the Man Harshberger are coming out for a big pow wow on the new design.
"That Wyatt Earp and crew willfully, feloniously, premeditatedly and of malice of aforethought killed William Clanton, Thomas McLuary and Frank McLaury."
—paraphrased murder complaint filed by Ike Clanton on February 9, 1882
