New Sheriff in Town by cheetahspirit New Sheriff in Town by cheetahspirit
My friend James commissioned me to do this portrait. He is a big fan of the Old West and wanted to be portrayed as a legendary Western character. I altered the sign behind him so that it reads "J Reading". Also, the wanted poster, which is too small to read at this size, features yours truly and the bounty is set at $1,000 (for historical accuracy).

Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore 500 vellum 3 ply. 16.5"w x 26"h. Photo by Eric Law.
