Busy weekend for art work. Spent most of Saturday and half of Sunday working on The Legend of Red Ghost coverage, including this set piece on how a renegade camel allegedly ended up with a skeleton on its back:
Yes, that's the mighty hunter who brought down Red Ghost. Kind of a crappy and unsatisfying ending, if you ask me. Watching Peckasso do his thing in the yard yesterday, I got the inspiration to tell the real, or, I should say BETTER story of The Legend of Red Ghost:
Let's just say it involves a Greek camel driver being cut loose in the West after the start of the Civil War and his encounters with the locals.
Got one more day of filming tomorrow on Outrageous Arizona, then a rush to finish all the artwork before the premiere of the show on August 16. Going to be tight, but then, it always is.
Kind of thrashing here and working hard, but perhaps overproducing a tad. Gee, I wonder what ol' Ray has to say about this?
"Like every beginner, I though you could beat, pummel, and thrash an idea into existence. Under such treatment, of course, any decent idea folds up its paws, turns on its back, fixes its eyes on eternity, and dies."
