Bat Masterson, Wyatt Earp, and Judge Issac Parker, all rolled into one no-nonsense law-man. The piece is aptly titled “Welcome to Hang’em, Kansas”.

I can’t begin tell you how disgruntled I am with my dysfunctional party of choice. However, I think this new illo pretty much sums it up for me!
On an artistic note, doing this piece reminded me how refreshing and therapeutic political editorial illustration can be – and of course, I miss my editorial cartoon days! I think I’ll do more…
Anyone who knows me, knows my love for Westerns! I’m a sucker for anything John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, or Glenn Ford. These movies celebrate and exaggerate the myths and folklore of the old west, and I LOVE it! The real western lifestyle was most certainly hard, gritty, and adventurous – but Hollywood give us an illustion of fast shooting, hard drinking, anything but dull men and women who are colorful and dramatic. I accept this fiction, and embrace the mirage of daily shoot-outs at high-noon – just for the pure fun of it!!
Enjoy my outlaw, there will be more Old West illustrations in the near future.
