About the Book
An understudy is an actor who learns a role and sometimes multiple roles in order to perform as a replacement if the lead becomes absent.
This book is a collection of portraits of the world’s most famous understudies reciting
phrases from some of their most memorable lines.
As an artist for over forty odd years, my biggest gig so far has been as the official White House Portraitist. During the past two years, I have had the privilege of painting our DearLeader over a couple dozen times looking his authoritarian best in all kinds of remarkable settings. And now, after much anticipation, I have finally assembled those paintings into a 48 page full-color book that includes personal commentaries, as well. It has been truly an inspiration to be so close and present with the man with the golden touch, who in every sense of the phrase, is Making America Great Again.
