Batmobama-MANIA!

I'm in my second day of jury duty, and since today is also Election Day, my mind is on the dynamic duo of the Democratic party. Apparently, I'm not alone. Since posting my "Batmobama and Robiden" giclee prints on Etsy, that piece has been getting a lot of attention from bloggers, message board commentors, and a host of online publications dedicated to keeping their readership informed of the latest trends. Not to worry, Batmobama's sudden success isn't going to go to my head -- I'm pretty sure that my next painting, "Noah's Gay Wedding Cruise," will appeal to more of a niche market.

Anyway, since I don't have much else to do here in the jury pool, I'm going to post a few links to some of the interesting Batmobama discussion going on out there in the world:

I also came across some great photos and recaps from the "Hollywood DC: Lights...Camera...Election!" opening at the World of Wonder Gallery (which features my orginal "Batmobama and Robiden" painting). I wish I could have been there to party it up with RuPaul, Santino Rice (from Project Runway), James St James, and even Heidi and Spencer (from "The Hills"). Here's a sampling:
