Week two of our book deadlines. Second 16-page signature due this Friday. It''s a 12-week cycle and we're running in front of a train. Worked all weekend on a variety of art for the sig, like this Hualapai flattop:

Worked for about an hour on new scenes and made a page full of notes in my sketchbook:

Of course there were other dudes in Mohave County who rocked a flattop as well, like these cats:
