Handmade Sign Roundup
This morning, we thought we’d highlight some of the fantastic signs that folks all over the country have made to promote Barack Obama…
Richard Rodriguez photographed these signs being made at the Shaw Art Fair in St. Louis.
Flickr user greeniebone of Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, ended up not being able to volunteer at an Obama appearance as she had planned, so she spent the day making Obama-inspired crafts instead–including this window sign.
Another San Francisco resident, Eric M., made these giant letters letters spelling “Obama” and hung them from his apartment balcony.
This mural is painted on a wall in the alley behind Old Soul Co. near 18th & L St in Sacramento. Thanks to ptelford for taking this picture.
Flickr user ivy_windchaser had the family’s Obama sign stolen–as did the rest of the Obama supporters in their Water Valley, Mississippi neighborhood. They’re fighting back with a sign they made for the thieves.
And another message to Obama sign thieves—this one from David in Savannah, Georgia who says,
Go Ahead… Steal all the signs you want. But you cannot steal our hope, our spirit, or our standards for those in power.
Flicka97236 photographed this Obama sign in Port Orford, Oregon.
Jill from St. Louis snapped both these pictures around St. Louis–where she says that there’s a 2:1 sign ratio in favor of Obama.
Laura Markwardt found this stunning yard sign made by an Obama supporter in St. Paul, Minnesota.
According to flickr user maavihlit, the letters spelling “Obama” in the Virginia countryside are about 15 feet tall!
We love this homemade Obama banner in dimmerswitch‘s Madison, Wisconsin neighborhood.
This sign was found in the Asian Americans for Obama photostream.
This sign is in Panama City, Florida; flickr user yankeepez drew upon the styling of Pepsi for this sign.
There’s no doubt about where this U.S. Marine from Liberty, Missouri stands in this election. Thanks to FotoEdge for this awesome picture!
We’ll end with this one–one of the most stunning we’ve seen, another one photographed by Richard Rodriguez.
While you’re at it, check out this great article from (one of my very favorite sites ever) FiveThirtyEight about why the campaign doesn’t, and shouldn’t, focus on sign distribution.
