Barack Obama

The law of the land

US President Obama

The quest for advanced digital brushes continues, and along the way I find this rather basic outline tracer, which surprises me by its versatility and effectiveness. With some efforts to tweak a few parameters, is does a neat job at producing wireframes that you can then inject into Pixelmator. You just need to choose the right portrait, and an iconic one immediately comes to mind.

Tribute to the 44th president of the United States of America, Mr Barack Obama, who has secured for all Americans the right to get free access to essential healthcare. Kudos.
