" Today in the mail I was blessed to receive from Detroit, Michigan, USA, a new spectacular coffee table book, "44th" (22 x 12in) featuring my portrait of Barack Obama, together with pages of biographical information about the 44th US President; poetry and beautiful photographic reproductions of the front pages of numerous African-American newspapers celebrating the news of the Obama victory.
Pictured here my tribute to Barack Obama, on page 12; and opposite page, the front page of the newspaper, Arizona Informant, after the US Election. The photograph shows Barack Obma, then candidate, at a rally at Arizona State University in October 2007" ~ Stephen B Whatley.
