I am THRILLED to say I had to change the title from Senator Obama to PRESIDENT Obama
Possibly the first American politician I have truly liked in a decade.
For an immensity of reasons, I deeply respect this man and hope that he wins the Democratic Primary.
I have left this in the bare bones stage because I believe the sketch represents his investment in the forming idea, his devotion to change, his populist compassion for anybody and everybody, and his candor/integrity.
If you really wish to engage in political debate here, I will understand that it is necessary territory going along with the portrayal of a controversial political figure. I have always loved political art, so feel free--but try to tie it back to the image itself. Don't just shoot your mouth off that "Obama sucks," or make long since debunked claims such as "he's a Muslim terrorist" or "he's a black racist." Come on, people. "If you wanna be somebody, if you wanna go somewhere, you'd better wake up and pay attention
," as the Spiritual goes.
