The muse: Wild Bill Hickock
The background: gunfighter, scout and lawman of the 1860′s American Wild West
The inspiration: BC and I are currently working our way through the Deadwood series. Early in Season 1, Wild Bill suffers his inevitable fate (it’s in the history books) and BC was so devastated I worried he wouldn’t finish the series. And so, for my Valentine, I offer this little homage to his favorite gunslinger. Note that we see the back of the chair. Wild Bill was shot from behind while playing a hand of poker – not cool, man.
The feeling: raw, western, simple
The elements: wood, metal, signage
