Presidential painting studies

Here are some isolated head portraits of ex-president Nosferatus for the Lincolnstein digital painting. I redid to get them right. From top, left to right: John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, and Franklin Pierce. I got the base how I wanted it and made some shadow and light corrections to get each of the heads to fit on their bodies in the painting a little better. In Photoshop CS with a 21" Cintiq.

Presidents' Day - Washington versus the undead

The Second Coming of the British Undead
November 19, 1787

In "The General Magazine and Historical Chronical", later combined with other entries into the Secret Supernatural History of the America, Benjamin Franklin wrote:

"...George Washington was the only one equipped, with the Axe of Delivery to fight the
British and Hessian undead brought back to life on the battlefield cemetery of Concord by the All Seeing Eye of the Egyptian God SET, an artifact designed by Anubis but made to create chaos in the world of the living. The undead rose in protest by the lords of olde to the basic principles of the United States government as described in the newly written United States Constitution."

Note: the meaning of the All Seeing Eye was subverted and later used on crests and most notably on the back of the one dollar bill to symbolize divine providence.
