The excitement over the United States’ new
president-elect, Barack Obama, has hardly settled down. With so many people inspired by our new
soon-to-be president, one can’t turn the corner without seen Obama’s inspirational
mug. Out in front of the l.a.EyeworksBeverly Boulevard store, the now classic “Obama as Superman” poster has been
pasted up. This great graphic, while
one of the best we’ve seen recently, was still missing one important
detail. Frames! An l.a.Eyeworker added the vintage frames on
Obama’s face, making this poster specs-tacular!
