File this one under a non-real estate related bit of nonsense. Driving down Cherokee Street in Benton Park West this afternoon, I noticed a mural, which I have never seen before: This picture of Barrack Obama. While Obama paintings, slogans and signs have been a common sight since before the election, this one really stood out to me. I couldn’t help but think this painting next to the Black Bear Bakery reminded me of something.
Then it hit me: It looks like a MAD Magazine caricature of the new president! When I got back to the office I found a couple of MAD pictures to compare. While not carbon copies, I find them oddly similar. Or maybe its just me. The thing that really struck me is that, love him or hate him, the new president is definitely an ingrained part of pop culture. The man is everywhere!
So what do you think? Am I seeing things or do these guys look like they were drawn by the same guy.
