I love these painting of famous historical figures as they might look if alive today. Here’s one (there are four others at the link):

    The guy on the right vaguely reminds me of Mark Steyn.

  2. Dan D Says:

    Richard Thompson!

  3. Mark Steyn? | Fausta's Blog Says:

    […] Or Henry VIII? […]

    Liz I looks like Meryl Streep.

    I so like the version of Elizabeth in a power suit and silk scarf lining the neck. (That’s how I always used to wear my business drag – saves wear and tear on the collar-line). Chic, businesslike, modest but excellent jewelry, and take-no-prisoners expression.
    It would be fun to see more of these people, given the modernizing treatment – giving a jolt to people’s perceptions of historical figures.

    You get a totally different take on these figures…it’d be interesting to reverse this and superimpose present day celebrity/politician faces into historical and period portraits as well. Maybe not as inerseting, though.

    Sorry, “interesting”

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
