Just thought I should post up some of my bigger stuff, too.


Jack, Ennis, and Sheep, being somber and mountainous.

One Headlight, a tribute specifically to the last verse of the song by The Wallflowers:
Well this place is old
It feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else
Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
I think her his death it must be killin' me
...We can drive it home
With one headlight

Has anyone come across any artist renditions of Jack and Ennis, based on the physical descriptions in the BBM short story by Annie Proulx?

Only in my imagination.  Heath and Jake are not what I pictured while reading the story.  Jack is kind of squatty, with slightly bucked teeth, large hips and haunches, Ennis lean, borderline bean pole.  At least in my mind from Annie's description. 
I must admit I like the images of Jake and Heath better, but the story makes it clear they were plain looking, rugged, almost homely.  A far cry from the movie!!

Yeah, I'm sure.  But somehow I have a longing for 'truth', which is so much apart of this story.  For me, what the story does for me more so than the movie is the fact these were everyday men who worked a hard life and continued to love each other as their bodies wore down.  I just would love to see them with Annie's eyes as well.

That reminds me of an old movie called Enchanted Cottage, starring Dororthy McGuire and Robert Young. It is a story about a homely spinster and a GI, deformed by war accident finding love and by the power of the enchanted cottage becoming beautiful only to each other and to nobody else.

In the beginning I thought that Ledger and Gyllenhaal were too stunningly beautiful for their roles but in a way I have found myself thinking that the Jack and Ennis in the novel saw each other as beautiful. And that the looks of Heath and Jake can be seen as reflection of beauty created by love and seen through lover's eyes.

tfmisc has posted some watercolors that were in the book wyoming stories (i think) over in the caption thread... you can find them by checking his latest posts, perhaps. they are very interesting! there's one of jack leaning against the front of his truck with a rifle jutting from his crotch. he is not the jack we know from the movie, that's for sure! there's another one of ennis fishing too.
