This is pretty much the exact image I had in mind as soon as I finished the movie : a butler seemingly blending into the background with past presidents of the United States walking pass him, waiting to serve. Pretty simple. I could have drawn more presidents, notably missing are Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson who were also depicted in the movie. But I didn't want to overwhelm the illustration with too many faces. I kept it fairly dull and muted for the exception of the American flag, letting the skin colour of the presidents "bounce off the page" to deliberately emphasize the blending of the butler into the background.
