Working on three versions of the "Hello, Bob" coffee cup and T-shirt design. The first one is a straight up design idea put forth by Dan The Man, who thinks we should go with my cover painting as more of an overview of the Kid and his career, rather than concentrating on the actual event at the Lincoln Courthouse in April of 1881.
Daily Whip Out: "Hello, Bob #5"
Then there's this slightly different take where it's more site specific:
Daily Whip Out: "Hello, Bob #6"
And then, there is the full blown window scene.
Daily Whip Out:
"Full Blown Window Scene"
And then, I got this feedback:
"Dude, I’ve already praised the artwork in your book of Billy blasting Olinger: the Kid still in chains looking down on the armed Olinger, who must of known he was toast. It’s the iconic shot (no pun intended) from Young Guns which was directly borrowed from One-Eyed Jacks. Will make a great tee shirt print as those who are eager to purchase Billy merchandise will recognize it from the Young Guns movie. Those of us of a certain age will recognize the progenitor shot by director Marlon Brando in Jacks. Extra credit to those of us who’ve read The Authentic Death of Hendry Jones by Charles Neider, which Jacks was based on."
