The Presidents..... Unveiled

My work for UpperDeck has ended with regards to this project. I completed 220 of these presidential portraits in a period of 4 months - A NEW RECORD BY FAR! The scale of these baseball cards was obviously a major challenge. It wasn't always fun staying holed up in my studio from sun up till sun down, all the while looking like Rick Moranis from "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" with coke-bottle magnifiers and head lamps on display. I used Liquitex Basics and Golden Heavy Body paints along with Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid (Satin). Enjoy all 22 presidents in the next many posts - Jared
