Those sketches don't look so great, in my opinion. Who is the first person supposed to be ? So the article says 150 cases were made, and there was 1 sketch per case ?

I could be wrong because I don't know the name of every person included, but that might be a better looking version of James Comey. He was included in the set and the sketch doesn't look like much of any of the other candidates. There are decent likenesses on at least a couple of sketches I have seen and I know Brian Kong did something.

But the majority really don't seem to look that good. I think that making a lifelike portrait is probably harder for an artist than anything else, just because we as viewers know what to compare it to. Cartoon portraits of real people don't work well.

I think the ones of Hillary and Tim Kaine are terrible.

The Kaine sketch looks more like James Carville, Clinton's old strategist from back in the 1990s

Apparently that mystery sketch is Gary Johnson, the libertarian candidate

Wow, someone knew that! I forgot about him altogether. I think he was the one who was asked about Aleppo and had no clue what it was. Maybe no one cared too much about the Decision 2016 cards because of ALL the people that were running. Ya think . . . Big Grin

The only reason I knew is because someone is selling it "you know where" and that is what he claims that it is. Smile
