Mike Wolfe from American Pickers and ROW80

Back in October of last year I had one of my posts on characters' faces, where I posted images of Rosa and the others from Out of the Water (set in 1492-3). I mentioned at the time that I was looking for a doppelgänger for Santiago (Rosa's father).




I keep looking back through other posts, but nowhere did I mention that I've found him!

One day I saw an ad for American Pickers, and there he was, Mike Wolfe. Then I learned that I'm not the only one whose, ahem, eye he's caught. For instance, Blondie's written a letter to Mr Wolfe.

He's a Guinness drinker. But that has nothing to do with Santiago of course, who was around long before Guinness was ever brewed.

Here he is, in the usual anachronistic surroundings:


Now I need Mawdlen (Rosa's mother) and Ayten (Rosa's friend) and Ayten's love interest, Devran Bey (son of the Grand Vizier). Keep a weather eye open...

As for ROW80: I'm editing, I'm editing, I swear. Never mind that I'm on vacation...

*teaser* Look for a guest post from Talli Roland coming on Friday! *teaser*
