Teddy Roosevelt


This sketchbook spread was inspired by The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, by Edmund Morris. This former US president wore many hats - as a naturalist, hunter, author, taxidermist, colonel, historian, conservationist, and politician.  Although Mr. Roosevelt died at age 60, he seemed to live 9 lives in that span of time.

Roosevelt was famous for his teeth, his love of hunting, and for his military leadership.

He was a US president, a big-game hunter, and colonel in the Rough Riders

"Believe you can and you're halfway there."    - Theodore Roosevelt
