Frontier Texas

Another job for Pyramid Studios and Bruce and Dixie. This is a different style than my usual cartoon/comic book approach. I've worked on many jobs through the years with Pyramid. Bruce and Dixie are aware that I'm capable of doing more than the cartoon style, I've done a few other some jobs for them that are a departure from that style. When they asked if I'd be interested in this job for the Frontier of Texas museum and a somewhat more realistic approach, for me anyways, I was glad to do so. I had just finished the Glen Burnie House job with them which was steeped in a very cartoon sensibility, so I was happy to switch it up a bit.

My understanding is that these drawings were to be mounted on the walls of the museum to accompany an exhibition dealing with Texas during prehistoric times and the development of weapons.
