Uptown Magazine

My Obama drawing was prominently featured in an article about Obama related artwork in this months issue of Uptown Magazine on sale today.

One Note: As a citizen, Barack Obama inspired me, as he did countless others, to put a sign on my lawn and open my checkbook in support of his candidacy. As an illustrator, I had no intention of creating a poster until I was contacted by the campaign and asked to do this drawing. As a professional and one of his early supporters, I was honored to contribute this piece. I'm proud to say that no copyright was infringed in the creation of, no private property was vandalized in the promotion of. no stickers, limited edition prints or T-shirts were sold. I offered it for free download to anyone who found their way here looking for a way to show their support for Barack Obama.

    Everything you do with your lines is a miracle, It takes the soul of a poet and the heart of a baby to handle the pen the way you do! I'll never tire viewing your pieces They are the vision of what sketching can do in its putity!
