Free for the Fourth: Founding Fathers printables

Charlie Hadley is a character artist with a passion for American history. In fact, for the upcoming Independence Day holiday, Charlie and his wife, Lisa, are embarking on a cross-country historical tour of National Parks! Today he shares with us his combined obsession with characters and history.

I love history. Whether it’s sitting on the couch watching the History channel or visiting various historic sites, history always inspires me. Maybe it’s the fact that I was born on the 4th of July or that I was raised in a town called Independence…either way, I can’t get enough.

I also love drawing. As long as I can remember, I have always drawn or painted.  I especially love drawing people. When I was a kid, I had an antique, decorative trashcan featuring all the U.S. presidents. I would look at that trashcan for hours and draw the faces of each figure.

With the 4th coming up, I decided to take my love of drawing and my love of history and combine them to make art prints featuring a few of our founding fathers.  I really like them, and I hope you do too.

These illustrations contain a few fun facts about each of the men featured.
Download ‘em. Print ‘em. Learn a little.

Just don’t throw them away in your decorative trashcan.
