Mixed Metaphors

Ever worry that you’re imagining things? From the fact of a Current TV ad in Milan’s Pasteur subway station, to it’s content, it was hard to shake the feeling that my mind had prearranged the decor in advance of our visit to the city.

Shepard Fairey’s Obama gets the once-over treatment by a keffiyeh-savvy Italian book illustrator. I like this version more than the original, as well as the visual allusion to Jordan’s late King Hussein,  the pun on Barack Hussein etc.
