As is probably obvious, this "comic" was inspired by the Obama/Hope poster. Frankly, I'm surprised that I haven't seen this already. Surely, someone beat me to the punch. In any case, my first thought was to do one of McCain with the word "Fear," but as that bit of unpleasantness is behind us, I figured I'd get in another shot at everyone's favorite leader.

The comic was done entirely in Photoshop. After lots of "research," I found an image of George that seemed appropriate. That step was probably the hardest. After that, it was really just a case of deciding what to aspects of George's mug should be red, white, or blue. I tried to keep my version close to the Hope poster, but I didn't quite match the colors or font.

I wasn't quite sure what to do with the little Obama "O." I tried making it a frowny/confused face, but I settled on the Ø because it works as both the "empty set" symbol or the "NO" sign.
