Gore Vidal, the great old man of letters...
This month, in Polari Magazine we have an interview with the great American writer Gore Vidal, a man whose subject has always been the hope that the idea of the US represents. His writings on sexuality, homosexuality, and the imperial ambitions of modern America have always been far ahead of the curve. The interview touches on the legacy of the Bush administration, and the changing mood in Obama's America.
It only seemed fitting therefore, that I drew on Shepard Fairey's style for inspiration.
