This is a cool image from Jason Heuser, be sure to visit his Etsy to check out all his work.  So this is a cool image from his that combines President Abraham Lincoln with The Matrix graphic.  It seems as though his artwork is based on famous American figures in pop culture.  He’s also got Paul Revere on a Tron bike, Barack Obama on a mountain lion, and Ronald Reagan riding a velociraptor.  I’ve included those below.
