The Politician's Progress: 1-6

I recently created a series of illustrations inspired by Hogarth's series of paintings, "The Rake's Progress." The original Hogarth series is beautiful! They are on display in the John Soanes Museum in London, which is one of the most interesting museums I've had a chance to visit. And admission, like most museums in London, is free! I modernized the story of the Rake to instead depict a fictional promising young American politician's decline, from a rising, hopeful figure into ruin through his own fatal flaws. Here are images one through six from the series. I will post the final two in the not-too-distant future...
