This isn't hell, you bloody yobs. This is only Texas. Illustrations for Texas Monthly's exclusive excerpt from Edwin Shrake's book Custer's Brother's Horse. It's 1865, the Civil War is over, but still honest men are marched to the gallows by red-throated Unionists hungry for revenge.
Custer's Brother's Horse was originally selected for Archive's 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide 09-10 book, but for personal reasons I decided not to include it. In the same year CBH was also selected for the 43rd Publication Design Annual (SPD 43), so it all worked out in the end.
