Jerry Dowling: News Portraits for Restaurant: The Whole Gang

From Jerry: There are 16 of these done for a new restaurant in West Chester called Grand Ole Pub, an American style mid-class place with a historic and political theme, going from the beginning of the country to now. All the presidents are up and framed in one room, and all these Fox news personalities have another wall. There is a small Statue of Liberty in front of a lit mirror.

I'll be doing more of these later. Newt Gingrich is one, possibly Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney.


  1. Oh man, I hope the food there is really really good, because this joint is cutting out their left-leaning customers right from the get-go!
    They should throw a Geraldo out there as a conciliatory gesture —maybe have a vegetarian wrap called "Al Capone's Vault" or something.

    They might lose a few righties as well with the conspicuous absence of Brit Hume and Charles Krauthammer.

    Fun stuff, Jerry. Talking heads are the best subjects for caricature. Looks like a great gig!

  2. the left will go just to hear what is being said about them. hah

  3. What, no Juan Williams? Not blonde enough I guess....;-) Excellent work as always from Mr. Dowling!
