Oh, behold the wonder of Photoshop trickery. I asked Dan The Man to clean up the photograph of Jesse Woodson James that has been damaged and take out the crack that runs through Jesse James' face so I can paint on it and create a new image of the lad and look what that Kingman boy did.
Here's what it looked like before Dan's schmoozing.
Wait until you see what I am going to do with that. Now, if you think it's wrong to "fix" a photo that is damaged, I have this to say: We're not trying to fool anyone, and we're not claiming this is a "new find" to try and sell it, but we are saying art is whatever you can get away with. Plus, I am going to paint a new version of this for the book I am going to do on the tragic Rebel.
Meanwhile. . .
