If you've ever wondered what it's like to run a magazine or how crazy my personal life is, be sure to read the behind-the-scenes peek at the daily trials and tribulations of running True West. Culled straight from my Franklin Daytimer, it contains actual journal entries, laid out raw and uncensored. Some of it is enlightening. Much of it is embarrassing, but all of it is painfully true.
In addition to this current journal, my early journal entries show the rocky road and money lost in the True West Business Timeline.
Bob's biography - The Unvarnished Truth
July 25, 2012
My aunt and uncle Claudia and Glenn Bell drove over to Palm Springs this morning to take a gander at the new Marylin Monroe statue. Big puppy, no?
Switched gears this morning and whipped out a scratchboard of Kissing Jennie before I went into work. Sorry to say, I'm a little rusty.
Yes, she's holding a glass eye (if you read True West you know why).
Spent the afternoon in the Beast, going over video of our new TV show Outrageous Arizona. So far, looks very good but I need to finish a bunch of ambitious paintings in the next two weeks. We're expecting big crowds at the premiere. Gee, I wonder what old Bach has to say about this?
"You don't tell the quality of a master by the size of his crowds."
