Awesome Daily Doodles by Chris Piascik

I've been a big fan of Chris's work for a while now ever since the beginning of his election doodles. He became enraged by McCain and Palin's antics and satirized it in his work. His taste for lettering and typefaces never ceases to amaze me and I always look forward to his next creations. Here I gathered some of my favorite election doodles of his, and I also included some of his post-election work towards the end. Hope you guys enjoy them as much I do! Almost a year ago I decided to start drawing everyday. I went out and bought a shiny new moleskine notebook and some brand new sharpies to keep myself motivated. As soon I finished my first drawing I snapped a photo and posted it on my blog. At first I was hesitant to call them "Daily Drawings" as I didn't want to start something I couldn't keep up with (see webcomics I tried to make when I was in Art School). Early on I started drawing type and text as a necessity because I was struggling to come up with things to draw. At the beginning of the year I became consumed with the Presidential election. I spent countless hours listening to the news and reading articles. This series of drawings documents my account of the 2008 Presidential election. As always, if you have any images that you took or maybe some cool pictures you've come across and you'd like to share with us, please drop me a line on Twitter and/or Facebook. I'd love to hear from you! 2008 Election Misc.
