Maybe my google-fu is failing me in my old age, but when I search for election artwork I can't seem to find pro-republican artwork. On the flip side projects like the Manifest Hope Show in 2009 featured work by Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Tristan Eaton, Jermaine Rogers, Sam Flores, etc fill my search results. Last week Dave Kinsey created the above print for the Obama campaign as an open edition until Nov 12th in hopes of helping raise money for the Obama campaign. (can be bought at blkmrktgallery.com)

I know there are Republican artists out there, but none of them seem to create artwork for a Republican candidate. Is there a concern by those artists of becoming shunned in an industry populated mostly by 'liberals' or is there another reason? This isn't supposed to be a hard hitting article, just a thought I had today and I wanted to get the discussion out there. If I'm wrong please post some examples/links below, but the best Republican artwork I can find seems to have an 'Obama Sucks' theme rather than 'Romney is good'.
