"Bush" sketch by Pete Ryan
This week’s feature focuses on Florida’s 2000 election recount, one of the most contentious moments of our nation’s 240-year history. For the cover, we put illustrator Pete Ryan up to the task of turning our feelings on the chaos of Bush v. Gore and Florida’s role in elections into a work of art. Here are his sketches, as well as the final piece.
