Ritona Raito (eCard Portfolio) Mean Business

Mean Business

I'm a big fan of Charles Portis' novel, True Grit. I'm also a super huge fan of the Coen brother's 2010 film version of the story. Ah, it's just amazing. This book is right in so many ways (no pun intended). I love the characters to death! Mattie is seriously the most interesting female character I've seen in any type of fiction. She's just bad ass. Oh, and Cogburn & LaBoeuf, gees don't even get me started on them. Brilliant. Portis really knows how to create complex characters. They're so complex, in fact, that they almost seem real. Anyway, enough about my 'fan-girl-ing', I love this book for a number of reasons: 1.) Strong female lead, 2.) Character complexity, 3.) Symbolism, 4.) Moral, 5.) Detail, 6.) Parody of classic American westerns. If you ever get the chance, give this book a read. It's just amazing.

Now where this little beaut came from: ( x )

I wanted to make a card for the True Grit novel, but I mean, I don't really think I can make much happen with this cover. So the comic adaption was the next best thing!

I found Christian Wildgoose made a comic adaption of a few scenes from the novel/film. The artwork interpretation is awesome! I love the smoothness and flow of the panels. Another great read!
