Also created for the Journal, this illustration of the “Big Three” at Yalta, as the Allies sought to wind down World War Two.

I had a good time drawing it, and my image was included in the Society of illustrators Annual printed book of their top illustration picks for the year.

Mor recently, I was assigned the task of once again drawing Mr. Roosevelt’s portrait. The client asked for a more engraved-looking image — here it is:

Lastly, I created the portrait of Churchill, below, as a self-promotional piece. It ran as part of my annual ad in the top national Illustration & Photography directory, The Workbook.
