In honor of this season of speeches and campaigns, here's an on-the-spot sketch from five years ago at a Howard Dean rally.
Jeanette and I were driving through Hudson, New York on September 20, 2003 when we saw huge crowds down by the river. We parked the car and got as close as we could. I was hoping to do a portrait, but I was too far back, so I drew the audience instead.
Dean is just a light dot with a necktie to the right-hand side of the gazebo. After his speech as he was leaving the venue he stopped and signed the sketch.
