    Yeah, I know the Brits say that. They don’t own it.

  2. Steve says:

    “Jolie Holland”, you mean, I assume?

  3. TonyMillion says:

    Yes, thanks, I corrected it. I was thinking odf the illustrator Brad Hollander or I was thinking of the Happy Hooker, what’s her name?

    i like this one too. the balloon one is good too.

    Yeah, I know, 20 days late to the party. But I felt compelled to say it’s a beautiful illustration, and I’m surprised anyone could change his/her mind about it. It’s the sort of image that makes we want to drop everything, drive to the desert, sit down and just … watch. Well done.

  6. Random Interloper says:

    PS: I hope this Holland character at least paid you a kill fee.

    • TonyMillion says:

      I always insist on full payment. Kill fees are for suckers, any magazine that even offers me a kill fee I drop. I dropped the New Yorker over this kind of thing. Nice art director, but what a pain in the ass is Condé Nast!!

    This is a very beautiful desert scene. Oddly, it reminds me of a scene in August Derleth’s story “The Gable Window” a.k.a. “The Glass from Leng”. In it, the narrator looks out on a desert scene – and a monster comes out of a cave, SEES him, and reaches THROUGH what should be a solid glass window !

    I wish to apologize in a way, for the previous comment. To revert to a saner, happier time when I was young. This also reminds me of a lovely piece of modern classical music “Portrait of a Frontier Town” with at least 5 movements
    1: Chamber of Commerce
    2: Out where the West begins
    3: Priarie Sunset
    4: Ranch House Party
    5: Main Street, Saturday Night.
    The 33rp lp record is by London. The flip side is a fantasy, “The man who invented music”.

    I think Jolies Mermaid is better
