Obama So Far…

The Rolling Stone cover story, appearing on newsstands Friday, examines the issues testing Obama in his first year in office. The image above was created by Shepard Fairey the artist behind the iconic “Hope” poster.

“The future is unwritten.” In my illustration I make reference to Gilbert Stuart’s famous unfinished portrait of George Washington to capture the idea that, although we’re quick to judge, it’s too early to tell how Obama’s presidency will turn out. Hopefully Obama and all of us who have stood behind him will do everything we can to fill in our incomplete future the way we’ve pictured it.

  3. I’ve been studying your entries all the way through my morning holiday, and I must admit the entire article has been very enlightening and very well written. I believed I might permit you to recognize that for some reason this blog does no longer view neatly in Web Explorer 8. I want Microsoft may prevent converting their software. I’ve a question for you. Might you thoughts exchanging weblog roll hyperlinks? That would be really neat!
