I didn't just make this up. Al Sieber, chief of scouts, said of Mickey Free: "he's half Mexican, half Irish and all son-of-a-bitch." If that isn't the subtitle of a book I would love to read, I don't know what is.
Got some facial things I'm working on. Seething for example.

Case in point:
Peter Beard Passes at age 82
Frankly, I had never heard of the guy, but in his obit, two things got my attention. The dude was married to Cheryl Tiegs for three years (one of my high school crushes) and he did some pretty amazing collages.
I love the little sidebars and gutter crawls. I think there is something in here for the future of narrative storytelling, i.e. graphic novels.
Great blocks of black, plus excellent draftsmanship. Nice! I need to emulate.
If you live long enough you see things repeat, and repeat again: the width of ties, the hem of skirts, plagues and pandemics. . .
