My morning coffee and your morning Barack

I'm not quite sure yet why I enjoy sketching this guy so much. There is something magnetic about him. And those ears that look like "open cab doors" are real fun. Another interesting thing about Obama is that his "string bean" body adds a lot to his caricature. You put that bobbly head on top of a flagpole body and you've got pure hilarity!
Every election cycle, we cartoonists go through this debate about who would be most fun to draw. I think Obama has my "vote" so far.

Hey! That coffee cup is looking a little low. Back in a bit...
