Power Hungry - Illustration for Baltimore Magazine

Power Hungry

Power Hungry

I just did this funny little illustration for the November issue of Baltimore Magazine. The article, written by Jane Marion, is titled "Power Hungry" and it's about the politics of the presidential palate. You can read it on page 224.

The specs were to include Trump and Clinton as well as nominees from times past eating some really weird (and sometimes gross) combinations: Lincoln chowing down on chicken fricassee, Nixon eating cottage cheese and ketchup (barf!) Trump enamored with a McDonald's Filet-O-Fish sandwich (I thought he was more of a Big Mac kind of guy - eye roll) Clinton and hot peppers/Sriracha, George W. noshing on some shrimp and cheesy grits and Jefferson spooning up a cup of crème brûlée. There were a lot of figures to draw in a tiny spaceso I went with a dinner scene adding a little current political climate humor into the mix. There may even be some tiny hands and thieving going on among the dinner conversation. I don't know, what do you think? :) Check it out some details below.

A shout out and big thank you to Stephanie at Baltimore Mag for the art direction!

Go ahead Hillary, you earned it!

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly 2016.

Michele Melcher

A few months back when I illustrated "Trump, Trump and Awaaaay!", I said that I wasn't going to talk about any more political stuff. I dislike political discussion mostly because it tends to bring out the inner ugliness in people that you don't normally see. That, and we still have to endure a whole friggin' summer and fall hearing about it everywhere, blah.

This is my pictorial answer to it all! Yep folks, no matter who is your favorite please remember that there are 2 sides to every story. *And I know that Ted Cruz dropped out of the race RIGHT AFTER I finished his portrait but it's still a good illustration (and quite funny with his mouth crusties) so I'm still posting it. I didn't even bother drawing John Kasich, because the poor fella never really had a chance with all of the attention that the orange fool gets. So without further adieu, scroll down to see the details of the good, the bad and the ugly!
