Roscover’s Obama: BURDENED

by quaesitor

Last week’s Time magazine had a poignant article about the loneliness of the Presidency as part of its coverage of the first year of Obama’s inauguration. Obama and the Loneliest Job It’s worth a read and is not particularly partisan or political. Who’d ever want the job, when all is said and done?

But the thing that struck me most about it was this picture. To accompany the articles, Time commissioned Dylan Roscover to come up with an image to tell the story. The man is a design genius. And I hope that this will become every bit as famous as Shepard Fairey’s famous campain poster.

It’s simply entitled BURDENED, but that’s superfluous, really. The image speaks for itself.

It is an utterly convincing, beautiful and bewitching work of art.

Check out his Steve Jobs from some time back:
