Father Knows Best...


James Madison is considered the father of America's Constitution. He believed this document should evolve along with the generations living under it's laws. This illustration accompanied an article by noted political scientist, Larry Sabato. In the spirit of James Madison, he proposes amendments  that would accurately reflect our society today. It was a fun challenge to incorporate these ideas into the portrait of a truly iconic American. Thanks to Suzette Moyer at the Tampa Bay Times for such an informative assignment.


Various amendment proposals float around James Madsion.

The Constitution as a baby carriage on it's father's shoulder?
