I'm currently loving

These portraits of Jewish gangsters by Pat Hamou. I'm not exactly sure why...they're interesting and extremely well done...

Albert 'Tick Tock' Tannenbaum

Arnold Rothstein

Meyer Lansky

See more gangsters here.

I like them too. They remind me of old posters in a way.
"Menace" is the first word that comes to mind.

Those are great. I love the muted tones to convey a "seedy" part of society type of feel.
