Nicholas Vokey’s Political Portraits

Illustration // Friday, October 26, 2012
“Right now I’m focus­ing mostly on sub­tly humor­ous por­traits of conservative-male politi­cians and busi­ness­men and roman­tic comedy/80s movies celebri­ties. I just fin­ished a draw­ing of John Boehner, the Speaker of the House, and Mitch McConnell, the United States Sen­ate Minor­ity Leader. You’ll also see Hugh Grant’s mugshot on there and Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger snug­gling up to a deer. Other things, like the steak and the porsche, revolve around rich-guy culture.“

Profiled in the magazine in the past, we love the cut-out book collages of Alexander Korzer-Robinson. He says of this work: "By using pre-existing media as a starting point, certain boundaries are set by the material, which I aim to transform through my process. Thus, an encyclopedia can become a window into an alternate world, much like lived reality becomes its alternate in remembered experience."
