A few weeks before the election, and just for fun, I quickly drew Obama in the style of the great comic book artist Jack Kirby (another hero of mine). My friends at the New York Times used the drawing in a small art show, which came to the attention of the editors of OBAMA The Historic Journey (a coffee table book published to commemorates the election/inauguration).
The drawing found a home next to an opinion piece by Bob Herbert, and it also humbly resides along side the work of great illustrators like Barry Blitt, Phillip Burke and Stephen Savage who were also included.
(My previous post on this art): Guess I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about this whole election thing - at least enough to draw Mr. Obama in action... Kirby-style! (Bear with me: it just puts a few of my heroes together in one place).

Today Show link
Big congrats to Barbara Davilman and Liz Dubelman for their Today Show appearance this AM in support of their book “What Was I Thinking?”!!!
(Who knew Billy Bush was such an enthusiast on dating stories!? He kind of man-handled my cover art, but it was nice to see it spin - TV news style - across the screen!)
