[Edit] It seems that my original political comment to preface this work was becoming a distraction. This piece was inspired by the hysteria generated from Obama making a comment about putting lipstick on pig.

you have a great sense of style buddy... BUT!
Actually I am not republican, nor living in the us, but I think CA should be a non-political art forum... seriously... so
this is the first time I see something like this here...
People have posted overtly political work in the past, and are welcome to do so now and in the future. What mechanism would you propose to keep things "non-political," exactly? And wouldn't any decision about what is and isn't political art be political itself?

It is not my desire to use the conceptart forum to start a political discussion or debate. Part of developing my art style is to follow the path that drives me and reflects my influences. Hopefully you can look at this and get a sense of my motivation and decide whether or not it is executed well and whether or not the style works well with the message (regardless if you like the message or not).
I do think pieces like this have a tendency to bring out some of the worst in people (especially on the internet) so lets try to keep the flame wars to a minimum. After all, this is a respectable forum. Monocles are required.
As for the piece itself, well done. Love the style, and the subtle tricks to the eye. It could use a little more color variation, but you may have been running with the pig theme. Oh, and thats a creepy ass pig.
(I totally agree)
you are absolutely right guys and CA has to avoid any censure of course. actually I like the posted artwork and haven`t got any problem with it at all.
my comment was mainly about the statement, because I haven`t felt it the most adequate thing here on CA...
anyway - it was just strange for me, thats all...
