Obey! Tuesday January 29, 2008

I believe with great conviction that Barack Obama should be the next President. I have been paying close attention to him since the Democratic convention in 2004. I feel that he is more a statesman than a politician. He was against the war when it was an unpopular position (and Hillary was for the war at that time), Obama is for energy and environmental conservation. He is for healthcare reform. Check him out for yourself: barackobama.com. Proceeds from this print go to produce prints for a larger statewide poster campaign. – Shepard Fairey (the Obey Giant Guy)

The Obey Giant Phenomena is quite possibly the my favorite source of design inspiration. Just look at the Armadillo Logo or the walls of the home office in Calgary, Alberta to see how it’s affected my design aesthetic.

So if OBEY GIANT says OBEY OBAMA ... Then I shall listen. All hail the OBAMA overlord.
