Mickey Free And The Slag Heap of History

May 27, 2013
  Here's a guy who fought for our country but didn't get much credit for it.

Daily Whipout #497, "Mickey Free Rides Past The Slag Heap of History"

Found an underpainting in the garage of a Mexican flag sky with a skull and crossbones in the foreground. Got an inspiration to tie it all back to Mickey Free and so, brought it into the studio and added the white mule and Mickey Free and his U.S. flag serape. A fitting tribute on this Memorial Day for some of the fringe fighters who made this country great. Thanks Mick. You deserve more than you got.
