Jon McNaughton has a thing for controversial political art, and I’m familiar with some of the other work he’s done.
His latest, however, is pretty much a piece of crap.
The body is out of proportion (the real Obama is thinner), the flames cartoonish, and the concept and background are both predictable and derivative. Compared to McNaughton’s other work such as Wake Up America and The Forgotten Man there simply isn’t the messaging or the interest.
Even if you agree with the sentiment, it’s just poorly done.
