One-eyed Outlaw in Grunge Junk Journal

8.25x5.25 mixed media collage portrait sketch of Cole Younger (1844-1916) in my grunge junk journal.  Sketched in hard charcoal pencil and black felt tip pen, on other areas I used colored pencils, marker (flesh tones), pencil, on tea stained old book page.  He was one of the Younger brothers gang who teamed up with the James brothers to rob banks and trains and spread murderous violence right after the Civil War.  Even though he's been dead 101 years it has not been that long ago as my grandmother was 12 years old in 1916.
