Helena Handbasket by CWRudy Helena Handbasket by CWRudy
After deciding to do my varient on the classic 'Red Hot Riding Hood' nose art, I had the bombs overflowing from her handbasket; thought "That's really hell in a handbasket..."

For whatever reason I was trying for a Jane Russell cast to her features - the Wally Wood smokin' hottie model.

I'll enable prints if there is interest, also available at cafe press and redbubble.

Excellent! You have captured the exact essence of our bi-annual and ominously oncoming state legislative sessions in this fine example of classic nose art. This should be on the inside dome of our state capital in Helena, Montana rathe than on a plane though! Of course, if that were the actual case she would be shooting herself in the foot while dropping bombs on the citizens.

So I'm guessing this isn't the first time you've heard this pun. Been to Montana as a youngster - aside from nearly getting shot dead, I had a great time - truly magnificent country up there.

Oh, this pun has been floated around a time or two in this vicinity.

Gee, i am thinking you did not have quite so friendly a reception if my hommies nearly shot you dead in the street by way of a hail fellow well met greet. Dare i even ask the details of that fine vacation, i am afraid i will sound like the guy who said, "other than that Mr Goetz, howw as your New York subway ride?"

Spent a bit of time in southwestern California myself and only nearly got shot at that so i think you are a half a round up on me.

Great vintage flavor nose pinups you create, hope to see them continue to get air born as they take a flight of fancy in your mind.

It was 35 years ago, involved would-be robbers and a long midnight car chase through the mountains - but we didn't judge them to be representative of the good folks of the state of Montana; went on to have a fine time tubin' down the river up there. I've been a lot more times nearly dead living down here...

Yikes! That sounds too close to "Deliverance -- The Western" to put on the state tourism brochure. Glad you got out of that without being robbed, shot, and made to squeal like a pig!
