After I wiped the tears from my eyes when Michelle finished her awesome speech, I found myself bereft. Oh, so far from the action! (I miss you Eli, Annie, and Charles!)
Well, yes, you can, but I can’t believe you did: A “Barack-in-the-box” by Heather Courtney of San Jose, California.
Obama! An oozing eyedropper for change! by Karen Wippich from Portland, Oregon.
Now you’re just scaring me, Larissa Brown Marantz from Orange, California. Cosmetic surgery often goes wrong.
This is called Moving the Wheel of Hope Forward, but to me it looks like I Have Been Buried Under Dark Blobs and Need Rescue. It’s by Fariba Safai of Sausalito, California.
I think this one, by Tom Bob of New York, New York, is more what the previous artist had in mind?
This awesome thing is by Stan Herd and his dogs, which I wish were goats instead, in Lawrence, Kansas.
Aside from the implicit airline promotion, I dig this one, by Shawn Hazen of Chicago.
There’s lots more, including a winsome vision that I’m pretty sure involves both money and environmentalism by Seattle artist Michael Leavitt. Check it out.
