  1. One day I am going to stop being lazy and actually finish the comic I have lying around. In the meantime, I offer a couple of book recs for your viewing pleasure (and to keep this place alive)! They are a pair: Signing Their Lives Away and Signing Their Rights Away. Packed with mini bios of the men who signed the Declaration and the Constitution. They are both fun books, quirky from the awesome Quirk Books, and the book jackets FOLD OUT into the Declaration and Constitution just for your history nerd joy! These books are good for the general reader wanting an introduction to the people and times of 1776 and 1787, but of course, they are just as enjoyable for the history nerd as well :] And if you already have them? You are awesome.

    On a sidenote, I am going to have to close requests for the time being; I actually didn’t think I’d get so many! So now it is just a matter of picking and choosing which ones I feel like doing first. I shall be sure to give a shout-out whenever I post one and give credit for a comic idea that was suggested to me. In any case, all your suggested history tidbits in my inbox make me happy; there are some events and people that I get to learn more about which is always the best!

     
     
  2. Haha man I am having too much fun with these! I swear, I shall stop the deluge of pin ups…someday. But I figured I had a Washington, so of course I should make a Lafayette.
But you know what I am loving right now? The Jefferson-Hamilton rivalry of course! It seems there’s an equal amount of people who love Jefferson to the people who love Hamilton (or they love both!). It’s 30-28; close call Jefferson!

  3. WHO’S YOUR PIN UP DADDY?
This is what happens when I have a lovely, long break from work and have been reading too much of David McCullough’s and Ron Chernow’s stuff.

  4. More 1776: at the top is Mr. Abraham Price of Boston, a fierce lawyer   who’d rather incite violence than attend court; next is an older Isaac Story! He’s a proper soldier now. M. D’Entremont we’ve also met before. And finally there is Mary Clarke, a young widow   from the country with nothing to lose and everything to hide ;)

  5. And finally (whew!), the last character, Léon D’Entremont; Born and raised in Spanish Louisiana, recently settled in Delaware,  D’Entremont is one of Isaac’s fellow prisoners on board HMS Seraphine  and is the one who helps him escape. Intelligent, resourceful, and more  than a little rude (except to the ladies of course), he develops into a  father figure for Isaac. He interchanges between French and Spanish; speaks English with a heavy accent.

  6. Ships are awesome, but kind of suck when you’re drawing them. HMS  Seraphine is a British prison ship captained by Ingram Cole. It’s dank  inside and rotting on the bottom and disgusting. There might be puke and  other putrid things staining its sides… I have managed to gross  myself out now.
I’ll probably do another ship-of-the-line, one that’s not so sinister because they were really noble-looking ships! And the British army was pretty noble too compared to the colonists who kind of just whined a lot at times. BUT, like in all wars, each side had men and methods that were Really Great, and men and methods that were Really Terrible.

  7. America in 1776; they’re not from David McCullough’s book, 1776 (which is sooper  awesome btw, I highly recommend it).
We’ve got Mr. Anthony Harcourt, who is rather well-mannered and  well-read for a poor Virginian rifleman; he’ll get to do secretary work  for the General once he gets a proper uniform. Then there’s Captain Ingram Cole who’s a really nasty piece of work. He probably eats children or something in his free time. Luckily brigadier general Julius Saints is a true English gentlemen and is able to rein Cole’s sadistic behavior in. And then there is fifer Isaac Story, one of the youngest boys to join the Continentals. I know I’ve used the wrong uniforms for Ingram and Julius. I think I  even used the wrong HAT too. This is what happens when you can’t find a  source on British uniforms online and the library is closed. Welllllp,  you get the GENERAL idea for their clothing
