Presidential Portraits by WonderDookie Presidential Portraits by WonderDookie
The 43 presidents of the United States in my faux cut-out caricature style.

I started this project more than a year ago hoping to have them all finished in time for the election. Ha! Oh well, better late then never.

One of my motivations for doing this series was to educate myself about historical presidents. How many can you name without having to look them up? I've been working on this project for so long a couple of the early ones already escape me.

Larger versions of each of the portraits, as well as a bit of trivia about each president, can be found on my blog -…

The More you Know :star:

P.S. Sorry for the file size. There would be no way to show the details without it being a bit massive.

And here's a link to the wiki page about the presidents -…

And that's great!
Wonderful caricatures!  My father had us memorize the names of the U.S. Presidents in order.  I always got stuck between Lincoln and McKinley since most of those guys were seat warmers.  The only one that I did remember for that period was Rutherford B. Hayes.  Not a great President, but he had a cool name and epic beard!

haha. That's fun. My dad didn't really get into presidential history until we were past that age. Making us memorize the presidents may be something he would do now though.

A lot of people are really down on Grant, who was president during that time period, and I think that's a bit unfair. Anyone who prosecutes the KKK so fanatically as Grant did gets a gold star in my book. 

haha. The things that were most memorable for me about Hayes were that he turned down a second term, and Mark Twain campaigned for him. That would have been something to see.

Thanks for the link. Is there something specific I should be looking for on it?

No:) The link is there to inform people who might not know who the caricatures might represent. Especially people who don't know much about the U.S. presidents or are not American.

That's a good idea. I'll copy and past it into the description.
