Help Us Do Our Final Swedish Death Cleaning. My Children Thank You In Advance

 February 19, 2024

   Early in my art career I was challenged by a fellow cartoonist with this intriguing statement: "Every artist has 10,000 bad drawings in them." In response, I made the decision to do six bad drawings a day to see if it was true. It took me almost five years to accomplish the goal and, yes, the vast majority of my ten thousand drawings were, in fact, let's say, for the record, "not that good." But, this exercise made me very prolific. I literally have thousands of Daily Whip Outs filed upstairs in my studio, thanks to the late, great Kristi Jacobs, who took the time to separate them by subject matter and file them in large envelopes. These packets take up every inch of floor space.

   So, it's time to thin the herd and share the bounty, as it were.

   This weekend, every last piece is going to a good home. Or, in the trash. Why? This is a gift to my children, and their children.

Daily Whip Outs: "Jesse James Galore"

Daily Whip Outs: "Billy the Kid's Galore"

(granted, these are all framed and not part of the sale, but you get my drift)

Uno Weighs In: "It's all crap to me"

   And of course, there will be a slew of scratchboards to choose from.

Daily Scratchboard Whip Outs:
"Some Of These Are Gone
But More Than A Few Remain"

   And, you guessed it, there will be a few old vaqueros in the mix.

      And, even a landscape, or two. Or 21.

Daily Whip Outs: "Landscapes Galore"

   So, join me this coming Saturday at the Cryin' Coyote Barbecue joint in Cave Creek from three to six. Everything that is unframed is available for $47.50. Be there, or be square.
