Today is President Obama's birthday and that means his sign is Leo. Here's a really funny piece that ran in the LA Times today. This is the illustration I did to go with it. Sort of a Lion King Obama kinda thing.
These two are rough sketches of other ideas during the concept phase. They liked them all but went with the more graphic image. I had to agree and think that thick, strong blacks look good on a newspaper page. The lion at the podium is just me being silly.
