Impossibility – IF


This is posted in response to Illustration Friday. This week's prompt is Impossibility. After Obama won the election I spoke with my 85-year-old Grandfather, who admitted he never thought he'd see a black man become president in his lifetime. I am happy he was wrong and so is Carl...

We're usually more happy about our elected leaders right after their being elected than we are when there is actually a track record to evaluate a few years down the line. This pattern remains to be changed.

Cool illustrations as of late. All your IF's have been great. I am glad I stopped by to see what you have been up to.
