Presidents from Memory

Just for fun:


This is finished for my show this week. It came right down to the wire and some things aren't exactly how I wanted them, but I had a deadline to meet (I can always revisit it.) Hopefully some chump buys this dumb thing. It's a big ol' 18"x24" print.


Big thanks for the encouragement and ideas. I don't remember if I used any names y'all suggested (finishing this in one marathon session last night has me in a haze,) but they were great nonetheless.

I'm super into this mostly for the ridiculous names. I think if you select maybe 12 of your favorites and lay those out it'd be great. If you do too many it'll just be overwhelming and may get instantly dismissed (I mean, really, who has time for that?)

I'm not sure if it would be legible on a shirt, but it would make a kick ass art print.

Jillian may be onto something here.

Yeah, they'd be too small even for presentation on the site. Good call.

I would give you $5 for just the names! :D But yes, maybe narrow it down a bit.

Thanks! This is first and foremost an art print (in a kickass stars-and-stripes custom frame job), so that's reassuring.

I should note that I'm also into it for the names. If it could just be a list of names no faces, it would be. haha

I love silly names.

FoodStampDavis

If you're into it, let's take this a step further and vote for your favorite faces/names. I'm gonna take Jillian's advice and try to narrow it down to a dozen or so.

I think this could work well as an all-over print. I'd wear it all the time

In my younger days I kind of looked like the dude between Thelonious Buttermilk II and Madison Strapple! Minus the stache but with the sideburns.

So keep that guy :)

I took this picture of a book (I forget which) several years ago and never knew what to do with it. Here you go. It is relevant.

Thanks you! However, I'll argue that you can't have Bigbird Cincinatti without Grover Cleveland.

I've been keeping a list on my phone of weird names and words as they come to me throughout the day. This is what's left of it. So Jillian's book helps a ton.

Chad President 2013!

That and Alan Crap are the ones that made me laugh at myself. heh

HAHAHA I just real-life lol'd at Alan Crap.
One time I got bored and looked through the phonebook for fun names. Carl Porn won that game.
If there's a female president on your list (I understand that there will not be), I've had Rhonda Butthole tucked away for some time as well.

I was actually going to throw in a female prez somewhere in there.

Also a child president.

I think the best ones are Buck Thunderbolt, Nat Dracula, Cramp Bojangle and Apollo Paddington

And they you, sir.

True story, Thomas Crapper invented the toilet ballcock. Hmmm.. I'm thinking Harvey Ballcock might be a good one. Also, that one guy up there with no name looks like Lemmy. You should give him a name that plays off of that or Motorhead. And you know I can't help but love Chad President.

I love this idea!

Love this. You going to throw a lady in there someplace? Maybe a morbidly obese one with a pedostache - Bernicia Hefferswine

Chester Thigpen

Loooooove it.

I once had a nitpicky chemistry professor who used to issue mock ups of lab formats with the stand-in name "Rutherford J. Butterthunk." Also, I'm a fan of making up names that begin with "Captain von" and end in something ridiculous.

Does Buck Thunderbolt=Space Butt?

[+duracell-]

Captain von "The Dragon" Steamboat

nah.. doesnt work ;)

I won't pretend to have though out Space Butt that much, but sure, why not?

Space Butt = Buck Thunderbolt. Consider it canonical.

i completely agree on the ridiculous names part.

however, i strongly disagree on the "...who has time for that?" part, only due to the fact that i need any excuse for someone to notice my chestle region. lolol JOKES!

i like howard skittles. i bet he was a fine president

PHYLLIS THE LESBIAN FOR PRESIDENT!!

Strnks

Can I suggest Drayton Fiesta and Cardigan Gillicuddy?

Musarter

A couple more suggestions: Cuthbert Gooberwinkle, Dr. Edipus Groinslocker Ph.D., Humphrey Cornfripper, Tallbert Coitalinguini. Although it does not seem like you are running low on ideas or suggestions.
