Art Juice: The Romney-Obama Vine Whip

[Art Juice takes a hard-hitting story and provides an unremittingly artistic slant, telling us a little something about videogames and ourselves in the process ... whether we want to know the truth or not!]

It's been a while since I committed brush to canvas and produced another painting, but I think the wait was worth it! After all, we're tackling perhaps the biggest issue in America right now -- the Obama elections! Who will get to be the new Obama of America? Only the Illuminati truly knows!

But under the surface of the mudslinging and healthcare, what is truly going on? I think sometimes we all get a sneaking suspicion that, whoever wins the elections, they're really just two vines whipping from the same Bulbasaur. Far be it from Art Juice to say that a Pokemon is really running the country, and always has ... but maybe it is ... metaphorically. Or literally. 

You'll notice that the painting has the issues surrounding the central figure. These are all hard-hitting political thoughts that we should take on board. It is poignant, like art.
