Suh-weet! I love it! Very cool. I've always liked that style of art.  :laugh:

I'm speaking from a purely artistic viewpoint regarding the Obama poster... so please no heated debates based on what I mean as an art criticism.  I liked the way Obama's posters look, I love the colors and the simplicity but they were patterned after the old communist propaganda art style of the USSR, Cuba and China.  Yes, looks like a revolution piece, and that was a big part of his campaign, but it also looks communist and that can carry negative connotations. I don't believe Obama is a communist... I just thought it was a strange art direction. That's all I'm saying.  :)  I do this sort of thing for a living (marketing and design), so I was perplexed by it.

By the way, I've seen this style of poster done with different dogs, Kenny. VERY cool. Check it:

Cool poster Jen!
I like that strong approach to art too - it's classic.
I have this one up at work, my boss has a pretty good sense of humor ;)
