Abraham Lincoln (Listeni/ˈeɪbrəhæm ˈlɪŋkən/; February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in 1865. He led the country through a great constitutional, military and moral crisis — the American Civil War — preserving the Union while ending slavery and promoting economic and financial modernization. Reared in a poor family on the western frontier, Lincoln was mostly self-educated. He became a country lawyer, an Illinois state legislator, and a one-term member of the United States House of Representatives, but failed in two attempts at a seat in the United States Senate. He was an affectionate, though often absent, husband and father of four children.
After deftly opposing the expansion of slavery in the United States in his campaign debates and speeches, Lincoln secured the Republican nomination and was elected president in 1860. Following declarations of secession by southern slave states, war began in April 1861, and he concentrated on both the military and political dimensions of the war effort, seeking to reunify the nation. He vigorously exercised unprecedented war powers, including the arrest and detention without trial of thousands of suspected secessionists. He prevented British recognition of the Confederacy by skillfully handling the Trent affair late in 1861. He issued his Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and promoted the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, abolishing slavery.
The Honeymooners is an American situation comedy television show, based on a recurring 1951–'55 sketch of the same name. It originally aired on the DuMont network's Cavalcade of Stars and subsequently on the CBS network's The Jackie Gleason Show hosted by Jackie Gleason, and filmed before a live audience. It debuted as a half-hour series on October 1, 1955. Although initially a ratings success — becoming the #2 show in the United States its first season — it faced stiff competition from the Perry Como Show, and eventually dropped to #19, ending its production after only 39 episodes (now referred to as the "Classic 39"). The final episode of The Honeymooners aired on September 22, 1956. Gleason went on to revive The Honeymooners as sketches and hour-long specials off and on through 1978.
Personal Note: Jackie Gleason is my 15th cousin once removed.
It's that time of year again...time for the Visual Arts Scholastic Event!
I'm an independent. I think the party system needs to end. That's one of the reasons I chose to draw this; while Obama and Paul are undoubtedly divided on many issues, there are things I like about both of them. Main point: for all the party bickering going on in Washington and the media, it seems like no one remembers that regardless of social or economic beliefs, we are one nation.
Anyway. This is one of the biggest things I've ever drawn--12x23 inches in 34 hours' time. Mechanical pencil with kneaded erasers, tissues, and q-tips. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out--let me know what you think.
Daniel Craig plays two of my most favorite characters: Bond and Lord Asriel. I used the Grid technique for extra precision. Even so, the eyes were difficult to capture. ---- I didn't know until very recently that deviations could be edited! I decided to go back and added in more contrast--it looks much better than before.
I realized that I hadn't drawn anyone from my other favorite series on TV, and that's a problem. So here it is--Walter White/Heisenberg. As of writing this I am near Abiquiu, New Mexico--about 2 hours away from Albuquerque, where Breaking Bad is filmed! Unfortunately I won't be able to tour the film sites--I'll have to find a T-shirt or something at the airport.
Well, I was right about my time prediction--this one took 32ish hours! As usual, I used a .7 and a 1mm mechanical HB pencil, with tortillions and kneaded rubber erasers as well. I'm really happy how it turned out.
