…A New Website! But before I give you the link, I’m going to build up a little anticipation with the following process art from The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation. This is how the magic happens;)
Now that I’ve revealed all my secrets, please go to graphicgettysburg.com to learn about the graphic novel with videos, visual annotations, essays, recommended reading and more!
It’s true, Lincoln isn’t as old as Yoda, yet. 204 years seems downright youthful in contrast to Yoda’s 800+.
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.
