Such a powerful and iconic historical figure Lincoln was. The film was amazing because Spielberg can do no wrong. I saw this beautiful amazing portrait of Lincoln on the way out of the theater and fell in love with it. Daniel Day Lewis did an outstanding job portraying Lincoln. Such an emotional and powerful film that touched the hearts of those that love American History. I know I do, it was my second major in college. Intrigue by the fact that this would be another Spielberg success I took the inspiration to draw Lewis’ image and transformed it into a beautiful piece of art. Step by step I see it as the most powerful portrait I have ever done. It was a very enjoyable piece to put together and a film that I strongly recommend for those that appreciate our history. This is art at it’s most emotional, powerful and iconic. Lincoln can do no wrong in art. A historical figure that every American should know of who he was and how he changed the face of American history. This is the beauty of Lincoln in film and in art. I think this portrait would look great in an American History teacher’s classroom. What do you think art fans? Prints will be available soon.

Hungry for more? That’s exactly the feeling I’ve got when I read and saw this fascinating motion picture. It’s definitely going to be one of the movies of the year. The book was so addicting that I couldn’t put it down. Full of detail and fascinating suspense I could define it as a book that it really grabs you. The movie was every bit as good, however. It is very difficult to cover all the details that the book includes into a blockbuster film. As it defines a new meaning for an era where Harry Porter and Twilight left off, The Hunger Games picks up and takes it into a new genre. Kids and adults, males and females are fascinated by it. I was amazed by the book and film that it inspired me to transform Katniss into the world of art. With a pure tone of color pencil I am delivering one of my greatest achievements.
