Get back with me and let's talk it over.Because Internet, the solicitation drew a number of serious, nay, credible responses, including the amazing commission above from Redditor I May Be Dead, which surfaced on the site yesterday. George Washington steals the thematic thunder for obvious reasons, but one has to question Stalin's hustle here: he's been boxed out easier than the Red Square (groan…). See more of the artist's portraits here.
