The Long Face of The Law
April 26, 2012
Went home for lunch and whipped out a character inspired by a scene I shot off the TV of Lawman. Here's the screen capture:
Great lighting effects. And here's my interpretation of it as applied to an old West marshal:
Not quite Wyatt Earp, but I call this "The Long Face of The Law" Ha. Not done with this yet. Have some more ideas on what to do with it.
Meanwhile, we're noodling ideas on our next book "Wyatt Earp In Hollywood: The Untold Story." Want to have Earp from the 1920s standing in Hollywood with the famous sign behind him. As you may know, the sign originally did not say Hollywood. Here is a photo from 1923.
Anybody know the story of why it was originally Hollywoodland? Gee, I wonder what ol' Diane has to say about this?
"The person who knows 'how' will always have a job. The person who knows 'why' will always be his boss."
