Our long time pal Tony Grillo down at Flinch Studio in Atlanta used to tell me that he wished he was Canadian. I bet that after the recent election this isn't so true anymore.
Being an American just got cool again, being Canadian means Amercians won't try to pass as us while travelling anymore. A win/win.
I was just thinking about it all, you know, what went down last night. It's monumental really. Not only did the Americans elect a true leader. They showed the world that they have officially crossed the racism border by electing a black man to the white house. It's a great time to be alive.
Hell I'm not even American but I get all emotional about it. It's quite something in my opinion. Makes me wish we had a true leader at the helm here in Canada, someone that inspires hope and shows the world what Canada truly is all about. A World Leader, someone like Barack Obama is what I think Canada is missing at the helm. Someone we can believe in.
Anyway, a great day, a great drawing!
Thanks Tony! Congrats!
