Political Face Morphing

When bloggers and Photoshop geniuses can’t decide between a candidate, they simply create a new one from two faces. 

Political face morphing has become an art of its own this election year.  The New Republic Magazine pulled off a hauntingly realistic blend of Hillary/Obama that is perfectly androgynous.  Earlier this year Trendhunter told you about another shocking Hillary/Obama blend in Belgium that is advertising Hogeschool University.  While some of the images are disturbing, they have perfect shock-value for magazine covers and billboards.
