Illustration Friday: Canned




Interesting word. It wasn't until I was driving to the Corporate Behemoth this morning that I thought about things in a can. My son's last band's tag line was 'better than sex in a can'. I thought about 'Whoop Ass Creative' in a can. But it wasn't until I was watching Senator Obama on some news show that I thought sheesh, this guy is a great speaker--dynamic, enthusiastic, quick on his feet. Essentially all the things Senator McCain is not. This isn't to say who is the better candidate, I don't like either of them for different reasons. But if the election comes down to personality, as they often do, Obama will win.

Anyway, this illustration is about the heretofore unknown secret weapon in Obama's medicine cabinet. The 3d can, background, and text, was created in Illustrator CS. The not-so-good likeness of Senator Obama was drawn in Flash.

As always, your comments are encouraged.

Tired of High Gas Prices, Call Nancy 202-225-4965

Progressive Democrat and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refuses to allow a debate to expand offshore drilling to come up on the house floor.

Pelosi and Ried, would rather you and I continue to pay back breaking prices for fuel rather than reach across the aisle and work with the Republicans. She and Ried are invoking parliamentary procedures to avoid the discussion—much like spoilt birthday childen screaming ‘it’s our party and you have to do as we say’.
