Prickly Pear And Mickey Free Redux

June 28, 2016
   File this one in the Can't Leave Well Enough Alone Department: 

Daily Whip Out: "Mickey Rides Through Cactus Field Redux" 

Hint: added additional, negative space, pricks to the prickly pears. Plus, redid Mickey to give a hint of his flag-draped poncho.

Couldn't resist "improving" another finished whip out:

Daily Whip Out: "Trigger Jim Young Redux"

Of course, both scenes are for the Mickey Free graphic novel, and that train has left the station (or, at least the excerpt "treatment" of a graphic novel).

History Repeats Itself
   The next issue of True West (August) will start dropping in subscriber's mailboxes this week. To long time readers it may look familiar:

Mickey Free Redux: Nov-Dec 2008 and August 2016 covers

This is the second cover we have dedicated to a Mickey Free graphic novel by the Top Secret Writer and myself. And, actually it's our third pass at the story (I did a two-page graphic cinema version as well), so we are hoping this is a third time is the charm deal. We'll soon see. Now, the question is, should I keep hammering on it, or should I let it go? I wonder what the Old Vaqueros have to say about that? 

"Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it."
