    IT has been a while since I posted any art here a LRH, but I know some of you are as obsessed with big Muley bucks just like I am. This mule deer is based off a real non-typical that as far as I know is still alive down in Colorado. Maybe Len or one of you will get his twin this fall.

    This is how the drawing and concept started out.

    A little more progress:

    The final result. I will be selling limited edition signed and numbered prints of this drawing. They will be approximately 8.5"x11" and cost $30.00, plus $5.00 shipping and handling. The original sold in less than an hour after posting it on the web. I'm going to miss looking at it. I will have to make sure I keep a print for myself. Just PM me for more details if you are interested. Since this is a brand new print, if ordered right away, you could get a low number. Hope you guys enjoy the art whether you are interested in buying it or not.

    I want to buy one. One of the low numbered ones if I am not too late.

    I have seen Troy's artwork up close and personal in his house.

    Amazing stuff!

    If this is the Troy I'm thinking, he drew this original based on a mtn. lion I'd caught in the early 90's.
