Obama and Daughters

Spent the morning drawing an American president with his family. The image is of Obama and his two daughters. I kept the lines loose as this was a quick sketch. After I penciled in the shapes I went over it with grey markers and a black felt.

I had previously drawn JFK and his daughter and liked the idea of drawing political figures with their kids as it humanizes them. I find it is easy to depict politicians as despots and whatnot, but rarely and perhaps more difficult to depict them as everyday people. I may continue this theme and work towards larger images, perhaps paintings. Let me know what you think!
