Oh, sweet. : )I foresee no tiring of your drawings of this man. Not a Democrat (nor a Republican, for the record), but with this I know I could be happy for 8 yrs.
This is terrific- one of my absolute favorite of your pieces.When they get around to adding more hours to the day, I hope you do a nice thick collection of your caricature work.
Agreement with above, Great drawing I have a "Fala" only he is a Watson, and a Hamish which is half Westie and Scottish Terrier, he loves attention but as a Darth Vader type, he is always in conflict with both sides...
Which means Fala? I am Italian and I do not understand. CIAO!
Dirk--Fala was the pet dog FDR had while in the White House. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/94/Eleanor_Roosevelt_with_Fala.jpg

I understand! In this image Obama seems like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and we just want the dog Fala. Thanks for the help. CIAO!
Obama smokes? I didn't know that. I think I want a vote do-over.
Thanks, yeah it came out ok, and the NYer cover this week, by Bob Staake, is one of their all-time greats.Dirk, Fala became famous enough that he has his own statue at the FDR memorial. And Obama made a point of saying his daughters will get a puppy when they move to the White House.Mike, I only learned that the other day. First chink in the armor, huh?
It would be more original a cat... :-)
I'd buy a book of Richard Thompson caricatures for sure. I may even sleep with it.
You liked the Staake cover? I thought it was clever, but not typical of his work at least as we see it in the Post. He seems to be becoming one of their 'go-to' cover artists though.Inside, besides Richard, are 3 Obama caricatures by Blitt (no cover though!) and a Feiffer drawing.
And John Cuneo!
Not only does this issue have all of the nifty things Mike mentioned, it also prints Richard's drawing as a full page. That's worth the cover price itself.We know you liked the Staake cover, Richard, but what I want to know is what did you think of Obama's doodle portraits of Sens. Schumer, Reid, Feinstein and Kennedy? The reporter raves that they are "identifiable."http://www.pioneerlocal.com/glenview/news/1273112,gv-doodle-111108-s1.article
The November 24th issue of Time has a Photoshopped cover with Obama as FDR with a caption about the New New Deal.
Kevin, I thought it was cool that Obama doodles, and yeah, they were mostly identifiable. Especially Feinstein.Eric, I think I'm fully justified in suing. You'll be a witness, right?And this may be available as a print soon. I'll let you know....
