Shepard Fairey's HOPE Was A Hit!
Now, do it yourself!
From its first appearance, the Shepard Fairey's Hope became a pop culture cult phenomenon, and items quickly sold out across the nation. The National Portrait Gallery has announced it will add Fairey’s original Hope print to its collection, and both Time and Esquire have commissioned versions for their inaugural issues. A similar Shepard Fairey design will be used for the official inauguration poster.
What if you're no Shepard Fairey? Never fear, visitors to Obamicon.me can create their own “Obamicon” for free! Launched by Paste Media, the publishers of the highly popular independent entertainment magazine Paste, Obamicon.Me allows anyone to create their own image in the style of Shepard Fairey by uploading a photo or taking one with their web camera.
