This is getting crazy...(in a good way)

There a quite a few "artists for Obama" groups coming up. Upperplayground and FIFTY24SF have their crew of dope artists. This Abe Obama...or Barack O-Lincoln, is scary! Ron English will probably be painting controversial pieces like this till he dies. I'm surprised McDonald's hasn't already had him assassinated. I'm looking forward to a Sam Flores "Obama" piece!

Also, my main man ISO50 (check out Tycho's music down in the "The Human Inspired" mix down below.)has done an amazing piece for Obama. ISO50's poster is awesome because it's totally inspired by Aaron Douglass' work during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1930's. Douglas's paintings combine very strong graphical imagery with really nice color palettes- but at the same time were always very strong in controversial racial themes.
