Finished up the cover illustration for the Western Legends book this morning. The book will include portraits of: John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, Lee Van Cleef, James Stewart, Katy Jurado, Walter Brennan, Randolph Scott, Vera Miles, Clint Eastwood, Jack Elam, Jack Palance, Gene Autry, Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Widmark, Chuck Connors, Amanda Blake, Cleavon Little, James Arness, James Garner, Raquel Welch, Gary Cooper, Marlene Dietrich, Lorne Greene, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, William Holden, Sam Elliott, Woody Strode, Katharine Ross, Wes Studi, Alan Ladd & Robert Duvall. I also had done one of Marie Windsor, but she got left on the cutting room floor (she was deemed a bit too obscure). I had a hard time keeping the list down to only 31 pages, and I ended up with a list of 75 names of actors and actresses and character actors whom I wish I could have included. Who knows, perhaps a sequel someday… Wish my Dad could have hung around a few more years to have seen this book, I think he would have¬†enjoyed it quite a bit.
