Steve Wilson: Barack Obama

Illustrator Steve Wilson’s portrait of Barack Obama, created for the cover of Pride Magazine, was spotted today on Obama’s tumblr.

“As soon as Obama gave his support for gay marriage it was pretty obvious that he had to go on the cover. There was some discussion as to whether we should carry on with the original concept and have multiple people in the illustration but I really wanted it to be just Obama, I genuinely thought it could be an iconic image… and I think it is!

We didn’t even feel the need for coverlines, what else is there to say – Obama, rainbow and Pride – pretty much says it all.”
