For those not familiar with vaudeville, blackface, or minstrel shows, Obama is not the subject of this poster. This piece only mimics the style of Shepard Fairey’s original work.
This is an image of a picaninny - what used to be called a nigger child. It was used heavily in advertising and repurposed in popular forms of entertainment (television, film, cartoons). It is a symbol of black oppression, a representation of black exploitation and stereotyping in pop culture that continues to this day, and is thusly expressed as such here.

My rendition of Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man #58 cover art done in vector.
Scottie Young is one of my favorite comic book artists. Im currently refining my digital drawing skills in Vector (line art) So for practice I decided to see if I could duplicate the work Scottie did for issue #58 of Marvel Adventures (one of my favorite comic book covers), mimicking his hand drawn line work using the pen tool via mouse (….no drawing tablet) in Adobe Illustrator, plus coloring, lighting, and texture work done in Photoshop.
aaaand I think it turned out pretty damn good if do say so myself. ☁
