For the background of today’s comic, I needed to draw the first three Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom, from back in the reign of King George I. Those Prime Ministers are: Sir Robert Walpole (later Robert Walpole, 1st Earl of Orford, KG, KB, PC), Spencer Compton, 1st Earl of Wilmington KG, KB, PC and Henry Pelham, FRS.

Sketches of the UK's first three Prime Ministers.

Sketches of the UK’s first three Prime Ministers.

The sketches are based on portraits available through WikiMedia. I’ve saved the sketches so I can add them into the background of later comics; in the same way that I re-use the paintings in Emily and Tesrin’s houses. This should speed up the comic sketching process.
