Drawing Obama, Part 4

Thanks for all of the amazing Obama drawings you've been submitting for our Drawing Obama series . We're still on the prowl for more, so if you haven't yet, go scour the fridges and playrooms of homes with kids and send us whatever wonderful Obama portraits you turn up.

We now have the grisly counterpart to our princess-ified Obama : Monster Obama. Five-year-old Wyatt "makes everything he draws into a monster," writes his mother, Jayne Hayden. "To Wyatt, monsters can be good or bad--the thing that he seems to like about them is that they're powerful. So this is a portrait of power." For those who can't read Wyatt speak, Jane provides this translation of the text on the drawing: "monst/ r brocobom/ u."
