Six-Year-Old Horse Thief

(G; Childhood Memoir) A personal story, from a time when there were no cellphones, no iPads and only one Starbucks. At six years old, I tried stealing a horse from the Catskill Game Farm. Read the story overview for more behind-the-scenes details.

The title design is based on the Hopalong Cassidy comics logo. Tom Orzechowski posted examples, with the perfect title/logo treatment I didn’t know I was looking for.

Looks great David. I like your coloring. Not too “computery”

Ansis is a freelance illustrator and comic book artist. Read his weekly web comic Magic Forest from the beginning to see why The Comics Journal, ComixTalk and Evan Dorkin are praising it.

Zorro on the Couch

Sure enjoyed 6 year old horse thief. We had the same heroes in our childhood. Noticed the Zorro box leaning up against the couch in the living room shoot out. Easily my favorite moment.
