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.

Maynardo vs. The Poacher
May 23, 2019 Working on a desert character. This is a poach from a self-portrait of an artist hero of mine: The Poacher
Daily Whip Out: "Maynardo"
I read a letter where my artist hero referred to himself as "Maynardo," which is hilarious and I intend to create a character in an upcoming story that uses this handle. Thus, the sketch.
Maynard Dixon self-portrait, 1940
This character will show up in a set piece with the working title, "The Last Fandango at The Heatwave Cafe."
"The process of remembering is, by definition, an act of imagination and invention."
