And I'm certain no one got rich off this failed attempt unlike like recruiting spending that advertising agencies actively pursue because of the money spent on those ads and the profitability.

    Wait, did I read that correctly? Did that whole publicity stunt really cost $300,000? Man, the Obama administration is gonna be soooooo pissed off when they hear about Photoshop.

    They could spend 50k on Maya and not even have a photograph while doing photo quality 3d animation.

    As I said, $300K for a postcard pic worth 25 cents; and it's not even a good picture to boot.

    Show me how this pic is going to earn more than $300K for the treasury and we can set aside any notion of pork until we see how Obama wastes it, and move on to address the impact this had on the population and how Obama placed a high value military asset in jeopardy simply for a few 100K in profit.

    Wow you are all over the map on this one. First off the WH is not in business but I bet were they were they could make. Buck off the image in question. After all Farrah Faucit made a mint off her poster. Secondly AF2 was never in jepordy. Thirdly making a 100k off of 300k means one ha
    E has made 33% of their investment. That is a way bettere than average return on investment.

    The best advice I can give is to look at art history and finds what interests you. We can go from their.
