It took me longer to make this portrait of Anthony Scaramucci than he actually served in the White House.
Anthony Scaramucci is an American financier, entrepreneur, and political consultant who briefly served as the White House Director of Communications from July 21 to July 31, 2017.
Days into the job, he launched a strongly-worded attack on members of the Trump administration in an interview with the New Yorker. John Kelly, then Chief of Staff, dismissed Scaramucci at the urging of the president.
Before the 2016 election, Scaramucci criticized the Republican nominee calling him, among other things, a "hack politician" whose rhetoric is "anti-American and very, very divisive." He said that he hoped Hillary Clinton would be elected president in that year.
He worked on the campaigns of Scott Walker and Jeb Bush before joining the Republican nominee's finance committee.
Four days ago, Scaramucci said he will campaign for Joe Biden. Scaramucci is quoted in The Hill as saying, "Of course I'll campaign for him, we gotta beat Trump. C'mon, it's ridiculous. You know, and your viewers know, how crazy Trump is. And they know that sane people have to work together to beat him."
Scaramucci served for 10 days. I took 14 days to complete this portrait.
