You Would Even Say He Glows

It's not Britney, but Barack Obama is getting almost as much attention as her recent tawdry escapades. It seems like everybody and their grandmother is clamoring for Obama nowadays. I tried to allude to the old stop-motion Christmas film about Rudolph in my drawing of him in the window. How can Santa be so cruel, picking some guy whose name rhymes with Osama over a cute,little reindeer with a bright-red nose? For shame, Kringle! This was also my first stab at a caricature of Obama. It's always difficult to capture somebody's likeness for the first time — especially on a tight deadline. Though, I have a feeling I'll have a lot more chances to draw him in the future.
