First Pass at Jesse James Intro Pages

 June 21, 2023

   Here is the view from my art desk this morning.

Jesse James On The Brain

   I'm busy noodling the first eight pages of my next book where I will give a glancing blow at the themes therein.

Every Kid has a future

"Jesse James Before The Storm"

Every criminal has an excuse

"His sister was crushed"

Every alias has a clue

"The Dapper Mr. Howard"

Every legend has a curse

"Oh, I want that reward!"

Every survivor has a secret

"He killed Joseph Heywood"

"Out of this tragedy rose a legend that resonates to this day."

    All that noodling and doodling has me drooling for the new Jesse James book.

  2. Correct me if I'm wrong but any illustration of Jesse should reflect the "crazy" in the guy. Was it is Mama, his daddy leaving home and never returned, that bomb thrown through the window leaing Mama Z with an amputated arm, seeing his stepdaddy strung up, his own gun shot wounds.....whatever....he was a good deal south of sane. But by golly....the guy had sand.
