This Guy Draws Octopuses On Portraits Of Vice Presidents

Because of course.

He told BuzzFeed Life that the idea dawned on him when he participated in a fundraiser that challenged artists to draw for 24 hours straight.

He feared running out of ideas during the marathon, so he decided to draw all 47 American vice presidents. He initially drew 22 of them in one sitting, but later re-drew the whole series.


In describing why he chose these particular subjects, he tells his customers, "These men have played large roles in American history and I did not want them to be forgotten."

He also finds it interesting that the role of the VP is so vaguely written in the Constitution. "Vice presidents, in short, struggle to make sense of a poorly defined role, all the while waiting for death. It’s a bit like life itself," he says.
