Heroes & Outlaws

Finishing up the LaLouisiane illustration series (the fourth of four illustrations representing various new and interesting courses at UL Lafayette) is an image representing the class "Heroes & Outlaws," which goes into detail about various notable historic figures. Two characters that fit the bill immediately were Billy the Kid and Wyatt Earp, so I thought it'd be fun to put them in the same illustration. And plus, babies are fun!

Please note that Wyatt Earp probably never held a Billy the Baby. So please don't go fact-checking on Wikipedia ( because I surely didn't)! Ignorance is comedic bliss.

  2. yep yep yep! this one was my favorite. *no need to check wikipedia though. the amount of billy the kid biographies i've read is freakishly weird. :)
