Dan The Man Pulls Cover Out of Rectum

May 25, 2012

   Working this morning on several fronts. In the middle of a James Gang painting that I need to deliver to Iowa next month. Also angling to complete the Wyatt Earp time travel.

   Just approved Dan The Man's new cover for August. Dan pitched us on the idea of Photoshopping the heads of the real Butch and Sundance onto the bodies of Paul Newman and Robert Redford in their iconic death charge. I told him I thought it would never work and for good measure I told him I would buy him lunch if he could pull that off.

   He did.

   When I got into work I saw this:


You made the front page of today’s Prescott Courier, and it wasn’t for cattle rustling! See the story. Congratulations.

As a matter of fact, I'll be at the Phippen Museum, north of Prescott, tomorrow showing off the mini-bronze of Not-So-Gentle Tamer. See you there.
