From There to Here, Portrait of our President with Irises

Friday, February 27th, 2009 | 2 Comments »

Here is some fine art sent in by Elizabeth Fox: “The portrait shows a head-on image of America’s first African American President. My intent was to incorporate more charm and personal tenderness in his likeness than can be seen in other portraits. Irises in the background surround his head like a crown. Historically, irises symbolize faith, valor, and wisdom.” Learn more and see the full work inside.

Way to stay classy, New York Post

Thursday, February 26th, 2009 | 1 Comment »

Many, many, many readers have been sending this in, so I guess that it is time to run it. Recently the New York Post ran a political cartoon by Sean Delonas. To many it clearly compared President Obama, the author of the stimulus bill, to the 200lb chimp that was recently shot to death after attacking a woman.

We Can Change

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009 | 3 Comments »

Andrew Newman sends this in: “The day after Barack Obama was elected, I realized that if I stacked the word CHANGE on three lines, I could extract the word CAN by using a different color. I then added WE within the letter H. The letterforms were adjusted so that the three lines were equal visually.” Another version inside.

Kerrianne Parrish shares the following: “Students from the Taggart and School of the Future Big Picture site and Mrs. Anderson 4th Grade at Moffet Elementary helped create or participated in the creation of these posters. The website provided a great opportunity for students to show their support and think about what ‘Be The Change’ means and what this historical election means”

This one is did not have a student’s name attached, but was too cute to pass up!
