Farewell President Obama

I thought I’d revisit this familiar face. The first real portrait I ever drew, 3 years ago, was from a photo of Obama back in the early days of the presidency. It’s always fun to compare old drawings to recent ones.

It’s so funny – people asked me, “Why’d you choose him to draw?” ย When I did a recent drawing of Trump (see previous post)’ people asked me, “Why’d you draw him?” ย Haha! ย Can’t please everyone… ‘ain’t even trying to’.

Humanity … its beauty, love, sorrow, joy, and all things associated with life as we experience it; that is what I try to capture in my drawings… that is why I drew ‘him‘.

Peace and Love to you.๐Ÿ’›

Trump & Hillary

So, I decided to make my little artistic contribution to the 2016 presidential election madness featuring the two most unpopular candidates ever (so I hear). Trump’s hair gave me fits. It looked so fake as I was drawing, but then I remembered that it looks fake in real life too ๐Ÿค” so I just quit working on it. ๐Ÿ‘€…. and … Hillary, well, she just ought to thank me for not drawing all of what I saw on her photo. (You’re welcome, girl) ๐Ÿ˜Œ.

Anyway, it’s all good (and needed) practice. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
