Years ago some people at Warner Brothers wanted to see my portfolio, so I gave it to them. They asked me if I could draw some of their cartoon characters. I said, "Sure, I can do that." So I gave them this drawing. The only reply I got was, "Our characters wouldn't be holding guns." Gee wiz, that wasn't the point, but hey didn't Wile e Coyote use dynamite to get the Roadrunner and who can forget Elmer Fud, he always carried a shotgun trying to get Bugs? Who were they trying to kid? Anyway I thought it was kind of fun, besides, California's still the wild west last time I checked.
