I disagree, SuzyQue. I’m a pen and ink artist as well — my medium is stippling, however — and I think this looks like a PS filter job. The line quality overall is inconsistent between the vertical/slanted crosshatching and the hatches that form the horizontal lines of the palms of the hands, Lady Liberty’s sleeves, and so on. It looks too much like it had a hard eraser brush in Photoshop used to clean it up...IF you could call that cleaning.
Overall I’d say it’s a hoax. The politics is too blatant, the filterwork didn’t exist in 1980, and the lack of cleanup in the white space areas is too obvious.
Not only that, Obama would’ve drawn himself as a monarch or with a halo.
Well, I can’t disagree with your last comment.
