Cliff notes: He takes individuals on wikipedia, and draws them! He also adds some blurbs around their heads from their wiki article. HOF FPP material there AND here.

Sometimes he draws a concept too, but it's best not to describe those, just as it's best not to look directly into a solar eclipse.

He didn't use Pinky and the Brain for the world domination? I know what Brain is doing tonight.

The Ann Coulter one is fantastic.

Why did he make Sarah Vowell look like a chimpmunk?

The secret ingredient is hand-lettering.

Sarah Vowell and Ihave things in common. I also cannot swim and do not drive a car and come from a desolate corner of the middle-west. On the other hand I am not (to the best of my knowledge) part Cherokee, nor am I afraid of heights.

I do not drive and have a wife and by extension daughter who are some vanishing part Cherokee - and two of us love Sarah Vowell and the other loves The Incredibles. Spooky.
