18th Century-Style Internet Slang Portraits by Shawn Huckins

Published Feb 21, 2012

In this series entitled “An American Revolution Revolution” artist Shawn Huckins explores the combination of 18th century portraiture with tweets, internet slang and emoticons.

“The American Revolution was conceived through an exchange of a few well-formed ideas communicated in person and by handwritten letters. Imagine what George & Co. could have done with the Internet.

Or not.”
