Firas Alkhateeb is the artist behind the Obama as Joker image. While he is not the guy who added the caption “socialism”, he is the original creator of the image. Here are some interesting facts; Alkhateeb is a US born Palestinian, who lives in Chicago and would have liked Rep. Dennis Kucinich as president. I wonder now if Earl Ofari Hutchinson still finds it racist? Something tells me not any more.
Alkhateeb said he found a Photoshop tutorial online that tells how to “Jokerize” someone’s portrait. Humm, anyone know where I can find a high-resolution image of Nancy Pelosi?
