I'm excited to reveal one of the last and most demanding projects I've been working on and had the pleasure to do it for @foliosociety .I've been immersed illustrating Charles Portis' True Grit. The book narrates the adventures of a smart and determined fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross in her quest to avenge her father's death. Vast southern landscapes, ruthless bandits and the strength and bravery of main characters makes this read an epic, beautiful western. @foliosociety first sortie into this genre, so, sincerely grateful for trusting in me. The edition is simply perfect, bound in printed and blocked cloth with a blocked slipcase in gold metallic ink. Apart from the binding wraparound and the slipcase there is a black & white frontispiece and 6 colour illustrations, including 2 double-page spreads. Hope you like it! I've made some pics from my copy of the book here and I now can say that it's gorgeous! More pics soon. You can get more info and buy one at their site: www.foliosociety.com/true-grit.html
The #cowcreek fire is threatening one of my favorite Colorado fall foliage haunts. Hoping wildland fire fighters are able to preserve ranches and other structures in harm's way and quickly contain this late season fire. Several scenes from one of my favorite movies, the original True Grit with John Wayne were filmed here.

“They say you’re a man of true grit.” Finally watched this movie and gotta say, it’s definitely one of my favorites now. Shoutout to Mattie Ross, and I guess Rooster and that dandy Texas Ranger. What a great story.

Big thanks to @salina_820 for recording the presentation I did of my creative essay, ON THE TOUGH GUY WITH THE HEART OF GOLD, my favorite film trope. I even got to record myself saying one of Rooster Cogburn’s lines from TRUE GRIT... while wearing my Kelly Kapoor (the Business Bitch) shirt. Also, thank you to everyone who came to this panel. It was a damn delight. (The whole recording will be on my author site later tonight. I hope.)

This has been bugging me for a long while now. I just happened to work in Fort Smith today. I came home the back way through my old hometown. It took a trip from one end of Hwy 22 (The True Grit Trail) to the other today but I finally realized who #gretathunberg reminded me of, not only in age and appearance, but also with her sharp words, swagger, single-mindedness, and determination. It hit me about Pairs. By the time I got to Yell County, I had to let someone know. #truegrit #mattieross #haileesteinfeld #kimdarby #charlesportis #highpraise
The best Little Blackie there ever was has moved on to greener pastures. Honored to have known you Cimarron. #TrueGrit #mattieross

(Also, I’m starting school tomorrow, I’m not sure I’ll be on the account around 6AM-3PM, but we’ll see. This is also a different edit, I started watching the movie last week and I loved it. She’s my favorite character. Ik, it’s from 2010 but it’s still great. I’ll text people after school.) #truegrit #truegritedit #mattieross #mattierossedit #haileesteinfeld #haileesteinfeldedit
