Benjamin Franklin

A character who fascinates me. Author, printer, satirist, political theorist, politician, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, soldier, and diplomat - there's barely a pie in his day in which he did not have a finger.

That said, I think I have his alledged lightning experiment a little wrong here - apparantly the key was on the kites's tail and not its main string.

I've just discovered your work. I'm no expert on Ben Franklin but I wager that's one of the best portraits of the man you're ever going to see.
