Beasts & Priests

Billed as “A Collection of Portraiture by Jim Blanchard”, this art book features various headshots drawn in a similar pixilated style as Drew Friedman drew for his Any Similarity to Persons Living or Dead is Purely Coincidental. Some drawings are generic, such as a hunter with a gun, but most are definitely recognizable as some celebrity. Some like his drawing of Willie Nelson resemble a photograph, as the drawing is so precise. Others, like his drawing of Henry Kissinger are exaggerated to give a bigger nose and droopier eyes and jowls. Great for fans of caricature.
