Obama: Wall Street Referee

With the US economy showing some signs of recovery, President Obama tries to keep his current winning streak alive by putting Wall Street firmly in his cross-hairs.

Looking at preventing another economic Chernobyl- he plans to introduce financial regulations that will hopefully prevent future taxpayer bailouts of folk whose business practices are modeled after the cast of MTV's Jackass.

As the president is looking at introducing new rules and regulations so that the boys and girls on Wall Street will play nicely, I have depicted the president as a sports referee.

This first image shows the artwork's transformation from a simple line drawing into a grayscale version, then finally a full colour Illustration.

Most of my Illustrations are drawn using a Steadtler pigment liner pen. I then scan the line -drawing into the computer and add the colour in Photoshop CS3. We are living in the digital age after all.

Final version of today's Illustration

If you have any comments regarding the topic or artwork I'd love to hear from you. Unless you're mean or overly critical in which case "love" might be overstating it. If you are prone to rant in a nut-like fashion, try to be entertaining as opposed to scary please.

Back to the ol' drawing board.
