Illinois Obama: Hobo

Illinois Obama

One of the features of John Hodgman‘s 2005 book The Areas of My Expertise is a list of 700 Hobo Names (expanded by 100 in the paperback edition). A group of illustrators, spearheaded by Adam “Apelad” Koford, took up the challenge of drawing the hobos behind each of those 700 names and they’ve done so nearly twice over. I bring this up now because I’ve just been reminded that Number 424 on that list is “Illinois Obama“. To what great heights hobos can aspire in America!
