Of Great and Mortal Men

October 9th, 2008

A year or so ago, the amazing Keri Smith dropped me an email asking if I’d take part in a project that her husband, Jefferson Pitcher and two of his friends, Christian Kiefer and Matthew Gerken, were working on. It’s a collection of 43 songs, each about a different president. So, you know, there’s a song about Eisenhower. And one about Lincoln. And Reagan. Etc. I asked if I could have the one with the sideburns. And so I was asked to illustrate Chester Arthur, our 21st president.
So then yesterday, Oct 8, I hear a story about the project on National Public Radio and I find that they included my Arthur in the nice slideshow. You can read more about the project here, with links to buy the thing. Enjoy.
