Art: Kinky Friedman For President by Artist Elisa Hirt
Kinky Friedman ran for Governor of Texas in 2006. In my opinion, he is one of the few politicians that is very blunt and honest. That is a rare trait in anyone these days, especially politicians. I recently finished reading his newest book, What Would Kinky Do?, and was inspired to use him as my subject for the Campaign Art Show. I designed this piece to look like an old west Wanted poster since he has been referred to as somewhat of an outlaw.

I first used photoshop to mock up my design. I then hand transferred the image and the text on to my Bristol board. For the final design, I used a Rapidograph pen, India ink and my trusty old ruler.
