Politics As Usual
Really nice graphic design and illustration from Shepard Fairey aka 'Obey Giant'. Ive been a fan of alot of his work from reading 'Lo down' mags and was delighted upon finding these fly campaign posters produced in support of Barrack Obama.. Im not a huge fan of politics but found Faireys motivation for these pieces rather inspiring.
About his motivation, he says the following: “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.
