America’s vice presidents have never looked so awesome. These tentacular ink and watercolor portraits are the work of Los Angeles-based artist and writer Jonathan Crow. His ongoing Veeptopus series depicts each US vice president with an octopus hanging out on his head (although he made a slight, yet somehow very appropriate, exception for Dick Cheney).
The portraits often accompanied by interesting historical tidbits and sometimes Crow deviates from straight cephalopod-VP portraiture to create wonderfully weird(er) pieces such as President Taft riding a badger.
Prints of the Veeptopus series are available via Jonathan Crow’s Etsy shop.
