You! Be Inspired! – Bad-ass Presidential Portraits by Jason Heuser

by . August 26th, 2013

With so much things to talk about about viral topics over the Internet today, who would give some attention in revisiting American history?

US-based artist Jason Heuser just did, in an epic way. His Presidents series of digital illustrations feature bad-ass portraits of US Presidents as heroes mostly in combat with beasts in fantasy realms and battlefields.

Jason’s re-imagined American history is a show of thanks to his seventh grade teacher, who helped him fall in love with the subject. He started the series last 2011 and became viral over the years which actually earned him a job as a game designer. Some of our favorites in his bad-ass series of portraits include the depiction of Bill Clinton’s love for guns, burgers and women, Ronald Reagan in a Velociraptor, FDR in a mech-transforming wheelchair suit and Teddy Roosevelt slaughtering bigfoot.

Scroll down below for more of Jason’s awesome presidential portraits plus Benjamin Franklin in battle with Zeus.
