I feel like the Obama craze has died down somewhat, but I'm still a bit obsessed. Wink I actually started this juuust after the election, and it has taken me this past seven or so months to finish it. Roll Eyes It's only five colors, about 5" x 7". I'm so proud! I can't wait to get him framed and on my wall.

I made the pattern myself, with a very carefully selected picture. It took a lot of modifying, etc. to get it just the way I wanted, but I'm quite happy with the way it came out. Smiley

Really impressive. Great image, and so subtle in shading.  Can you give me a real broad idea of how you designed it?  Special software?  Graph paper? I just wouldn't know where to start.  Thanks for sharing this!

Photoshop and PCStitch Pro. Grin If you're more artsy-fartsy (unlike me), you could try graph paper.
