Mitt Romney for Huffington Magazine (by tsevis)
OK. I am a long time devoted Obama fan.
I have decided long ago to avoid to create any negative work.
So why have I accepted this commission?
For 3 reasons:
1. Huffington Post: Arianna Huffington (or Stassinopoulos for us Greeks :-)) has shaped the ultimate model for contemporary media houses.
2. Josh Klenert: Josh is not only one of the most innovative creative directors but he also creating the right atmosphere when you work with him. This is the 4th time we are collaborating. I had a lot of fun working with him and his team for Billboard magazine and IHeartRadio.
3. I cannot say right now. Please wait one more week. :-)
So this is a Mitt Romney portrait made for for Huffington magazine and especially for the issue covering the GOP Convention in Tampa, Florida. It’s made out of people the the journalists of HP believe they are important for his presidency.
