If you've ever wondered what it's like to run a magazine or how crazy my personal life is, be sure to read the behind-the-scenes peek at the daily trials and tribulations of running True West. Culled straight from my Franklin Daytimer, it contains actual journal entries, laid out raw and uncensored. Some of it is enlightening. Much of it is embarrassing, but all of it is painfully true.

Smoke of A Forty-Five and Del Webb Makes the Catch
December 13, 2018 Grabbing boards right and left, splashing paint all around.
Daily Whip Out:
"Smoke of A Forty-Five"
Got a request from researcher and writer, Erik Wright who wants to inquire about using one of my scout images for a book he's doing.
Daily Whip Out: "Vigilant Scout"
For all you Zonies, yes, the model for this one is Flint Carney, In-din model extraordinaire. Meanwhile, here's a work in progress:
Daily Whip Out: "Hell Bent for Leather"
And here's a second wash on the same board:
Daily Whip Out, Part II:
"Hell Bent for Leather, 2.0"
This second one was shot on my phone on the floor of my studio, so the color is slightly subdued (as you can see in the first one). Expect a third wash. Speaking of good catches.
Del Webb makes the catch
A humorous publicity shot of land developer and builder Del Webb, who built much of Sun City and other mega-subdivisions in the Valley. Webb was a huge baseball fan and advocate and, in fact, owned the New York Yankees from 1945 to 1964.
My good friend Juni Fisher has just published her first book and this morning I took a few minutes to start reading, "Girls From Centro," which refers to a part of Nogales, Sonora.
"She sounded like angel music played on goat bells, far off in the hills."
—Juni Fisher, in her new novel "Girls From Centro"
