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

True Grit by Charles Portis is new in our Christmas Collection.

Amongst the greatest first-person narratives in American literature, True Grit is a taut, tense and unflinching adventure in the tradition of John Steinbeck and Mark Twain. Gorgeously written and epic in scale, it has all the characteristics of a classic western and it marks Folio’s first sortie into this rich but often underrated genre. 
This edition celebrates the book's filmic scope with @juanestebanjer's lavish illustrations. Soaked in sepia hues and western nostalgia, these atmospheric scenes perfectly depict the characters and their surroundings. The wraparound binding shows a defiant Mattie staring at the trail she hopes will lead to revenge.

As celebrated author Donna Tartt writes in her introduction, ‘No living Southern writer captures the spoken idioms of the South as artfully as Portis does.’ True Grit had a huge impact on Tartt’s literary life, and that’s the beauty of the book: it’s a western for those who love westerns, but it’s also a darn good read for anyone who loves an adventure story. 
Take a look at this edition: 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.

So, Inktober has definitely not gone as planned (a.k.a. I’m behind several days—can this count as #inktoberday13?)—BUT, I finally finished this digital art piece and I’m super excited to share it! I watched True Grit last month and loved it, include its protagonist, Mattie Ross, and this is my interpretation of her. It was great fun and great practice, considering I hadn’t done any detailed digital art before, and seeing the before (swipe to see it) and after is satisfying. The only thing I wish was that I could’ve figured out how to draw a background—but 1) I tried (and failed) and 2) I like the simplicity of having a plain background. I think it suits the style best.
.
Have you seem True Grit, or any other good western movies? I’d love any suggestions you could throw my way. 😬

“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

(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

The Western equivalent of “The Friends of Eddie Coyle.” Or is “Eddie Coyle” (1970) the Crime novel equivalent of “True Grit” (1968)? My first read of this deeply satisfying, expertly written, yarn. The astounding character of Mattie Ross: an American original. Now on to the films. Thanks @charlesdevigne for spurring me on to pick it up. #fictionorbust #truegrit #charlesportis #mattieross #roostercogburn #johnwayne #henryhathaway #coenbrothers #jeffbridges @haileesteinfeld #mattdamon @overlookpress #georgevhiggins #thefriendsofeddiecoyle
