Obama Posters: Power to move those undecideds?

Jess at How About Orange did the search for artists' posters of the candidates, and while she only found one for McCain, there's a website with a whole lot of wonderful ones for Obama. Click here, and be amazed!

Any undecideds out there: let art make the difference! (Click to David Sedaris's piece about that in a recent issue of The New Yorker). Wouldn't it be great to have a president who actually uses the word "art" now and then? And who has the ability to inspire this kind of creative outpouring?

You can also download printable art posters from AIGA here, urging everyone you know to vote.

Great posters E. I was in Target today and happened across two children's books side by side, one for Obama and one for McCain. Below is a gangly Amazon link that includes both . It was interesting to step back and view each candidate as a child's composite (or at least an adults approximation thereof). Stories, albeit oversimplified ones, with out the barb of attack ads that have made us all numb--a refreshing note in the final week, as we may find ourselves envious of a certain outcome but relieved that it will soon be over.

P.S. It is interesting to note how many more children's stories--i.e. stories meant to capture the imagination of the most hopeful among us--have been written about Obama.
