Notes Russell's skill as a storyteller-in both word and picture-reached its apogee with the publication of his illustrated "Rawhide Rawlins" stories, which began appearing in Montana newspapers in 1916. These publications would provide lasting insight into Russell's very western sense of humor. This drawing of a paunchy man dressed in sportscap, shirt, tie and knickers, holding a cigarette in one hand and autocrank in the other is from those illustrated stories.
