The Lost Dutchman Was German

November 23, 2011

Big pow wow at the True West World Headquarters yesterday. Arizona's most awarded journalist, Jana Bommersbach was here; and Arizona's Official State Historian Marshall Trimble was here; and Dan The Man Harshberger (former treasurer of the Wickenburg Clown Club), Editor in Chief Meghan Saar, True West Publisher Ken Amorosano and me (former president of the Wickenburg Clown Club).

Jana did some editing and pruning of our massive coverage, while Marsh added some Ashfork style zane (a taste: "The first white man in Arizona was a black man, The Lost Dutchman was German, the first Arizona cowboy film star was a woman and Navajo fry bread was created by a Greek. . .").

Still working on the cover image. Here's a sketch from yesterday:

Woke up at two this morning with a concept: The birth of Arizona as seen from the Sistine Chapel. Sketches to follow this afternoon.
