Wise - IF


This post is in response to Illustration Friday. This week's prompt is "Wise". I can't take full credit for the Yoda illustration. I redrew it in Illustrator from the original, and made him look a little less frightening and more wise, as we know Yoda to be. The poster is by the illustrator/street artist Shepard Fairey. May the Force be with you Obama!

This is a surreal illustration...
but I love it! I'm a big fan of Obama AND Yoda. They go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Mmmm... chocolate and peanut butter.

Thanks for wishing my Nana a Happy 9oth Birthay. She has no idea she has "fans" from other states. I'll have to clue her in once I present her with her cartoony likeness in December.

Nice work, though I'm sort of tired of all things politcal at the moment. I'm a big fan of Shepard Fairey a lot!!!

Howdy ~ thanks for sharing this wise moment. I had fun with this piece and I'm happy you all did too.

Well, this is my thought..

Maybe, just maybe, we had to go through 8 years of torture to finally walk away with a bit of history we can all be proud of.

Thanks for stopping by, GZ! :)
