In Africa, it’s really common to find printed textiles with the faces of political leaders all over them, so I hacked this one together to celebrate the first African president of the USA! I’ll bet that anyone who actually produces an Obama commemorative cloth will sell every last shred of it!
I may be just an overeducated, privileged paleface here on the bottomest corner of this massive continent, but I think I speak for most of my fellow Africans when I say that we’re simply thrilled!!
PS: I used this cloth as the basis of my hack Photoshop job. No parallels between Obama and the original subject of the cloth are intended at all. I just liked the pretty flowers. Read more about African commemorative cloths here.
