More Lawdogs And Mexicali Studs

July 30, 2018
   Got home from Santa Barbara last night and enjoyed, or, rather, I faced the baking heat of my hometown as opposed to the balmy ocean breeze of the California coast.

   Woke up this morning with a new-found enthusiasm for my work. It's always inspiring to see other climes and it's always even more fun to come home. Found a couple of old boards in the studio this morning and tweaked them for future use.

Daily Whip Out: "Lawdog #3"

Daily Whip Out: "Mexicali Stud #3"

Daily Whip Out:
"Goyathlay On The Mexicali Stud"

Daily Whip Out: "Snake Eyes #3"

   Came into my office this morning to find a big old package on my desk. Inside I found this:

My own Sugarloaf sombrero
made by RJ Preston!

   Hot damn! Thanks for the custom made hat, RJ, very, very cool.

   It's become rather in to knock Facebook, but I have to say, if I hadn't been posting my sugarloaf images on there, I wouldn't have found RJ and he wouldn't have approached me about making one for me. Expect to see this sucker on a few of my Daily Whip Outs in the very near future.

  1. Hey Bob, I found RJ (courtesy of you) and got one of his fine sombreros a couple of weeks ago. It has been on my head several hours each day since, and I'm wearing it now. The man does magnificent work! He made the one he calls "Little River" for me. Tis a fine piece of work. I've ordered 2 more. You have awoke the big hat lust in me. That is a mighty fine one he sent you. Will you be setting your customary hat aside whilst getting acquainted with that fine sugarloaf?

  2. Your sombrero is awesome! We need to see a pic of you with it on.
