Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

So a couple years ago during the 2008 Presidential Primary season someone had brought up Photoshopping the candidates into Star Trek, and I took a stab at it (here and here). This is the full series of images...

Obviously at the time McCain had locked up the Republican nomination, while Clinton and Obama were still battling it out for the Democratic nomination.

So the election is long since over, but I've noticed that the Obama image has taken on a life of it's own... with either copies or hot linking of the image in all sorts of places. It is the single most requested file on my site. Strangely enough, people have applied all sorts of ideas as to what it was supposed to mean... when in fact there wasn't any meaning to it (I had done all the candidates, not just Obama).

Anyways, I just thought I'd share that interesting development. Ya never know how any of these things are going to turn out once out on the web.
