I was recently in Stillwater. So I doodled a Pistol Pete.

Sweet! That's like the best Pistol Pete ever! Did you read some of his book while you were there? I read the whole thing, -I stole it from Brice before he could even read it. I don't normally go for changing iconic figures, especially when their dear to my heart, but OSU should consider updating their Pistol Pete cartoon symbol to this... His posture here is so much more full of movement, and the way he's holding the gun looks just like I'd imagine in real life. -And this cartoon still holds true to the spirit of the original cartoon (awkward feet position and all). Hmm... I just looked at Wikipedia and it looks like a different colorization of the cartoon was used before the current one, -so there is precedent for updating the Pistol Pete cartoon...
