Abraham Lincoln: Age 204 years

It’s true, Lincoln isn’t as old as Yoda, yet.  204 years seems downright youthful in contrast to Yoda’s 800+.  Lincoln_AndrewLoomis01

I imagine Lincoln received a book or two as birthday presents, so I thought it might be appropriate to present this mock-up of our book cover.  The illustrations are taken from the interior except for the central portrait that I based on a photo of Lincoln reading to Tad that has been reproduced frequently.  The cover was designed by Adam Johnson.  Thank you, Adam!

And here’s an extra bonus: The BW lineart of an interior page that features Lincoln and a cameo of his bible, perhaps his most famous possession…after the hat.

  1. Nicely done illustrations on President Lincoln. My son enjoys reading those anime’ and manga (did I write those correctly?) and often i find him trying to imitate the styles. I showed him your blog and asked if he was familiar with your work, he’s 13. Told him drawing historical stuff is equally cool, just as you did for President Lincoln.
