You know this guy – don’t you? No, I am not talking about Alexander Hamilton (His cap didn’t have feathers in it, did it?)
Yes, I AM talking about Alexander the Great!
The man who for some unknown reason decided to go east on an annexing spree until he hit the northern frontier of India. Then he rebounded. I understand others, even the completely loony chaps like Hitler – at least they had motives, but the only motive that I can ascribe to this young man’s battle-lust is what his dad told him. When Alexander was ten, his father Philip said to him, ” “My boy, you must find a kingdom big enough for your ambitions. Macedon is too small for you.” Now if only all the kids in this world listened to their parents, they’d all be Alexanders – won’t they?
The good news that I wanted to share with you is that Alexander is soon coming to your favorite caricaturist’s blog.
If you are wondering whether I am going to take another long trip into the past, please don’t worry. I am not. Unlike those other caricatures that I drew by actually traveling into the past and meeting those great/not-so-great’uns, I based Alexander’s caricature on my memories of previous life, which I lived in 324 BC, in Babylon – but that’s another story and I’ll tell it some other time 🙂
Until then, let us prepare for Alexander’s invasion…
My blog’s been invaded by Alexander the Great! View Alexander’s caricature (Poor guy!) here.
