The Grave Digger

May 30, 2016
   Working on an African-American frontiersman who tracked the Apache Kid to a spring on the Slaughter Ranch. He lived to be 102 years old and spent his last years in Tucson where he worked at Holy Hope Cemetery.

Jim Young in Tombstone circa 1920s

Did a couple sketches trying to get under that snap cap:

"There are two statements about human beings that are true: that all human beings are alike, and that all are different. On those two facts all human wisdom is founded."
