Name That Mini Series

It should not be hard to guess where that is from (Lonesome Dove).  Even though I haven't lived in Texas in over 20 years, I still subscribe to Texas Monthly magazine off and on.  Right now, it's one of those magazines that has dropped drastically in price and I couldn't resist a renewal.  Anyway, the cover story this month is the story behind the story of one of the most famous TV series of all time, and a 25th anniversary tribute to that series.  Even though I have seen it more than once, I don't think I have ever seen an actual map of where all the action takes place.

According to the magazine, this map was "created by production designer Cary White to show the cast and crew how the story plays out."  Anyone who loves maps and loves things hand drawn and hand lettered will love this.

Since I haven't had much play time lately, I decided while I had the magazine in my hand that I would take some things from the magazine and make something.

I tore out this ad, gathered the little cards that fall out of magazines, and for good measure grabbed a few coffee filters I've been wanting to do something with.

I pretty much ended up with a big fat nothing to show for it as my creative muse was off somewhere taking a nap I think.  The only thing I ended up with was painted cards, but maybe something will come to me later on what to do with them.
