"Drawn to Presidents: Portraits and Satirical Drawings by Drew Friedman"

From the Billy Ireland Library and Museum website.

Abraham Lincoln by Drew Friedman (All the Presidents, Fantagraphics, 2019)
Pennsylvania-based illustrator Drew Friedman has employed his intensely realistic, warts-and-all style of caricature to satirize celebrity and authority for four decades.

In his latest book from FantagraphicsAll the Presidents, Friedman points his pen at the exclusive club of the United States presidents.

Theodore Roosevelt by Drew Friedman

Building on a centuries-old tradition of cartoonists satirizing those in power, Friedman’s influences include Edward Sorel, Robert Grossman, Mort Drucker, David Levine, and more.
