Famous/infamous Faces, 1995-2010Book - 2010
Drew Friedman finally gets his due with this fat, beautiful collection that showcases his wide-ranging skills as a portraitist and caricaturist. This collection of celebrity portraits is split evenly between political celebrities and show-business ones, ranging from Friedman's instantly iconic 'Barack Obama as George Washington' New Yorker cover to brutal depictions of Britney Spears and her tabloid-filling ilk. Also includes a running commentary by Friedman on the stories behind the drawings and reactions from magazine editors.
