Illustration Friday - Choose


Here is my submission for Illustration Friday this week. The theme is "choose," and I thought what better than the choice for President. (My political leanings are pretty apparent since the choice I am focusing on is that of the Democratic nominee.)

I ventured into the realm of the digital in this one. For those of you who are digital pros, please forgive any faux pas. I'm not used to creating my pieces with the computer's help, but I had a vision of using Hillary's and Obama's images, so there was only one way to go to accomplish that.

What do you think? Good, bad, ugly?

I was wondering if someone was going to tackle this subject. I'm glad you did. Very cute. How did you find such a weird picture of Barack Obama? :)

As far as I know, there aren't any faux pas in art (digital or otherwise). Good for you for experimenting! And it's a good interpretation of the theme.

hahaha! too afraid to tell whose gonna win, about the technique, it's a matter of time, you've got to trial and error with the new tools, be patient, good start.. :)

I think you did a great job! I am learning too, and it is daunting! Interesting to think that a little girl who has no control over the choice will be completely at the mercy of those who do. Makes you want to really choose carefully!
