"American Topic"

Today I finished a drawing based on the iconic “American Gothic” painting by Grant Wood in the early 20th century. I was also thinking about the forthcoming American election.

The original painting was of a farmer and his wife but I've replaced them with Clinton and Trump in my drawing because it's the American Topic for 2016.

The person elected in 2016 will probably be in power for the next eight years, impacting USA and world politics until the mid 2020’s. Remember, we never thought George W. Bush would be elected but he got in for two terms and we’re still feeling the effects of that legacy.
