From the cover to the newest edition of Giant Robot – a magazine about Asian American pop-culture. Eric Nakamura, the publisher and co-editor had this to say: “Why an Obama cover? Perhaps some of you are sick of seeing pop culture images of the President-Elect. I honestly was getting to that point, and that’s when I thought maybe I could learn more about it, and explain it to others who maybe felt the same way.”
More from Eric:
Behind the scenes just a bit: Yes, it’s an Obama cover, by David Choe, most of you may have seen his other image, but this is actually a water color that was almost like a study, but sometimes, the studies turn out to be great. This is one of those examples. Upper Playground worked with this image as well, in their huge quest in helping the ascension of Barack Obama as a candidate and President.
