As I was growing up in the forties, the closest thing to a hero I and a lot of other kids and adults in the USA had, was Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He literally saved our lives. He not only provided jobs for the masses, but also food for the poor families. He got us thru the depression and WWII to emerge a stronger nation than ever before.

I did a photo realistic portrait of him and wanted to share it with everyone who is interested.

The Illustration Friday  theme this week is “Homage.”

  1. My grandfather was born in Arkansas in 1933, and fifty years later still held FDR in such regard that I grew up with Roosevelt almost a living entity in our family discussion of politics and events. FDR was a standard we’ve not come close to since, and a great choice of subject for `Homage’.


  2. Thanks Josh for your comments and sharing the info about your grandfather. Yes unfortunately, we will never see the likes of FDR again.
