We turned in the fourth signature on "The 66 Kid" last Friday. On schedule for completion on March 15. Still a ways to go, but so far so good. This weekend I'm working on Service With A Smile, Jugs Iced Free and, perhaps, my favorite segment Related to Outlaws, which I plan to excerpt in True West. Speaking of which, got this critique of my Pat Garrett Assassination painting in the current issue:
"BBB your painting of Garrett on page 23 looks like an unshaven selfie."
Oh, crap. My worst fear. I spent a long time trying to get Garrett right, and this is the second person who has commented on this. Robert Ray being the first.
