BITCH YOU'D BETTER GIVE ME MY GODDAMN MONEY
AND GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN
SO HERE WE HAVE JAMES MONTGOMERY FLAGG (1877-1960) who was, like most of the people featured on this blog, A BADASS. Remember that drawing of Uncle Sam that's in every single high school government history book where Uncle Sam's pointing at the viewer and going UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU or whatever? Yeah, well, creepy thoughts about this country's anthropomorphization aside, JAMES MONTGOMERY FLAGG drew that picture. He's famous mostly for his propaganda posters because he was SO GOOD AT THEM the boys would line up to check that shit out and go DAMN I WANT TO JOIN THE ARMY ALL OF A SUDDEN GET A DAPPER UNIFORM AND BITCHES EVERYWHERE.
He studied FIIIIINNNNE art in London and Paris because America wasn't good enough, and when he came back started drawing all kinds of shit. Cartoons, posters, magazine covers, all that good stuff. Purportedly, at the height of his career, he was the highest-paid illustrator in the United States.
P.S. You want to know what he looks like? Check out those Uncle Sam posters. He used his own (aged) face as the model, although the goatee and white hair and all that was kind of made up.
