Abraham Lincoln - Smithsonian

14-1226-Lincoln.jpg

I was honored to be asked to create a piece for the Collector's Edition of the Smithsonian magazine's issue commemorating the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln's assassination.

Erik Washam was great to work with. I was pretty much left up to my own devices as to what kind of image I wanted to portray. Since this was the opener of the book which also contains a huge amount of other illustrators, I thought a dark, foreboding image which gave emotional foresight into the future of what we all know what eventually happened.

This is a newsstand-only release available everywhere. The image is available as a print on request.
