settling differences


William Hatfield, originally uploaded by Rob Carey2.

May 8, 2011. William Hatfield, also known as "Devil Asne Hatfield," led his family in its bloody feud with the McCoy family in the late 1800s. The feud symbolizes so much of what's wrong with our human condition, and one of our greatest ambitions is to teach the young ones how to settle differences before they escalate. The strongest way to teach our kids how to do this is by our own example- how we handle conflict ourselves.

Fantastic illustration, brings to mind some of Robert Crumb's Blues players illustrations. Great pen and ink and love the way you incorporated the flag and the name into it.

Thanks, Peter. I do get a little Robert Crumbish at times. ;)
