Oh Teddy by Junryou-na-Kokoro Oh Teddy by Junryou-na-Kokoro
Part of my first project for Advanced Illustration this semester. We were told to illustrate 6 portraits of persons (living or dead) who we would want to have as "Facebook Friends."

My favorite of all the illustrations I did was of the United States' 26th president - Theodore Roosevelt. This guy was pretty much the most hardcore, kick-ass president ever. I'm reading a biography about him by Douglas Brinkley (fittingly titled The Wilderness Warrior), and let me tell you, Teddy was full of vigor and wit!

This was painted with Copic sketch markers on marker paper in a matter of 3 hours. I was SO HIGHafterwards...
