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.“
