Theodore Roosevelt Bully! Illustration

I’m glad to see many people enjoy and buy Bully! products featuring my illustration of President Theodore Roosevelt. As a child, I was always interested in the image of Roosevelt; the large teeth, the mustache, the bulging neck. And of course the battles he fought during the Spanish American War were pretty exciting to read and hear about in school. As an adult I began to sketch him on occasion and was happy with a particular illustration that I think feels somewhat iconic. I titled it Bully! a word that is associated with President Roosevelt and is part of the vernacular of that time. Bully of course meaning excellent or splendid and “Bully for you!” meaning “good for you”.

After people began to buy Bully!, not just on shirts but mugs, magnets etc. I wanted to know a bit more about President Roosevelt and picked up the excellent biography THE RISE OF THEODORE ROOSEVELT by Edmund Morris. The book, the first of a trilogy, chronicles Roosevelt’s life from birth to the assassination of President William McKinley. At times the book reads much like an adventure, as Morris recounts in page turning detail Roosevelt’s time in the Badlands, his many hunting excursions, his pursuit of outlaws and his courage in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. I learned much about Roosevelt’s days at Harvard. The sudden and tragic losses of his father then later his first wife and mother. The thing that left quite a lasting impression to me about Roosevelt, though, was his fearlessness, whether facing down a bear or a fellow Republican.

The second book, THEODORE REX is out although I have yet to read that and Morris is currently working on the final book.

I hope to add more illustrations of Roosevelt to my store soon. Right now you can buy Bully! as well as a pencil sketch as seen below by following the link below.
