Here's Thumbing My Nose at You, Kid!

 January 16, 2023

   I don't know about you, but I think it's time for

   Dan The Man's cover concept utilizing an actual Old West photo we recently found in the True West archives.

Here's Thumbing My Nose at You, Kid!

   I'm not sure which is funnier. His face and eyes, or that hairdo!

Daily Whip Out:
"William Allan Pinkerton On Horseback
c. 1910"

   Original photo from the Mark Lee Gardner collection. Meanwhile, I'm studying compact writing, like this.

"From Hell's heart I stab at thee."
—Moby Dick

   And, here's that damn Robert McKee waxing on good storytelling:

"A story well told gives you the very thing you cannot get from life: meaningful emotional experience. In life, experiences become meaningful with reflection in time. In art, they are meaningful now, at the instant they happen."
—Robert McKee, "Story"

   No wonder we love stories so much!

One Final Request
   A crusty, old cartoonist is on his deathbed. He grips his son's hand and whispers these final words:

"Make sure the hats are right!"
