"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Yes, now anyone can transform an image into the famous, ubuquitous, iconic 4-colour Shephard Fairey poster.

Having my own personal Obama image to work with, I started with this:

Then I did Ruth & Jewel.

Then I did my head shot.

And finally, I did the Duchess who is a major character in my novel.

If you feel compelled to try it out, you can go here. Registration required. You can order stuff--coffee mugs, shirts--with your Obamicon. That's not my intention, of those items I have far, far too many.

That said, my jazzed up 17th century Duchess is mighty cool. So who knows?
