Flip-Flopping On Billy

September 18, 2013
   My production manager, Robert Ray, came in this morning and said, "We have the best scan of the Billy the Kid tintype of anybody and we have flopped it to show how Billy really looked, but shouldn't we be running it as it really is?" Good point. Here are the two versions, with the original on the right:

Flip-flopping Billy, as he really looked (at left) and how the tintype actually looks (right)

   Went home for lunch and whipped out another take on Cowboy Ground Zero concept:

Daily Whipout, "Cowboy Ground Zero Concept, #4"

   Going to do a linework-woodcut looking version for a possible stark cover image, but inside it will be a full-boat painting of the world of the horseback warrior.
