We didn’t plan on watching Obama’s state of union address tonite because we were doing out to eat for my birthday dinner and weren’t sure what time we’d be back. I usually never watch the state of union addresses by any of the past presidents because I don’t care about speeches I care about actions. Don’t say, just do, right? Bush said all sort of crap and did whatever he wanted and see what happened? Disaster!

While we were eating dinner at this mexican restaurant, the tv’s that were usually reserved for sports were turned so we could watch and hear Obama’s speech. I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. I watched and listened to the entire speech. I was just enthralled and inspired once again by Obama and his vision for the future. What can I say? I’m a sucker for an optimist.

Last year, I went to Nashville, Tennessee to visit the famous letterpress shop Hatch Show Print. It’s one of oldest shops in America. I bought about 20 posters advertising random events like music festivals, museum openings, shopping events, etc. I wasn’t sure what I would do with them but I knew I would eventually do something with them.

And then it happened this past Monday, I was inspired to make this poster collage. I looked at my blank 30″ by 40″ canvas that had sitting in the apartment for a few years gathering dust and I knew what to do with it. I cut up 10 posters into 3″ by 4″ cards and glued them to the canvas.
