Thomas Nast

For the holidays, here is Thomas Nast. He was the artist responsible for the creation of such famous characters like Uncle Sam, the Republican elephant/Democratic donkey and of course:  Santa Claus! Though Coka Cola can definitely be credited for the modern red-suited adaptation, it was Nast who first drew it for print. He is THE father of editorial cartooning.
