Sketchbook: Paul Ryan of Wisconsin

Paul Ryan is the Vice Presidential candidate of the Republican party for this autumn’s Presidential election. You can read the acceptance speech for the role which was given to the Republican National Convention yesterday. It’s created quite a lot of controversy in a not dissimilar way to some of the announcements made by his predecessor in the role, Sarah Palin.

The sketch was quick work from audio visual and drawn on a telephone. It is my first go at the new man on the American political scene.

Addition: 2nd September 2012 – An interesting aside about Congressman Ryan’s relationship to telling the truth. Namely boasting, wildly, about his achievements at running marathons.


Updated – 13th January 2015: My colleague Ann Telnaes has also had a go since Ryan’s elevation to Speaker of the House in the US Congress. Typically, it’s very good, in my estimation.
