Obama Sketch

Yesterday was a milestone in history, not just for America but for the whole world. To see a dream realised, which would have been absolutely inconceivable 40 years ago, shows us that anything is possible in this world.

I started this as a sketch, but as I was feeling inspired, I worked on it a bit more and I'm really happy with the result, I might even paint it eventually! I haven't done any political caricatures before, mainly because I mostly like to draw people who I admire in some way, and I find most politicians quite loathesome. But for me, Barack Obama is a symbol of hope, and the limitless potential in all of us. Maybe the world is coming to its senses...

Unfortunately, pretty much everybody I know hates him, I have no idea why, they don't really have a clue what they're talking about.

I used this for a sketch for my art class, I hope you don't mind. I just turned 15 and I want to go into a graphics related field.
