Obey Obama!

This is from my other blog

Obama

Whatever you think of the candidates, you have to admit this country has election idol fever. Even designer and artist Shepard Fairey has gotten act and backed Obama. Shepard best know for his Obey Giant guerrilla campaign. He went one step further by creating this poster and proceeds from this print go to produce prints for a large statewide poster campaign. Unfortunately the poster is sold out. However you can download this pdf of the black&white version to print on your own printer if you so desire.

From Shepard’s site

UPDATE: Thanks for all those who bought the print in support of OBEY and OBAMA. Unfortunately, the print is sold out and we do not plan on producing another edition. The edition was released earlier today with great response. The PROGRESS screenprint was exclusively available through OBEY and the HOPE offset print will be distributed by the OBAMA Camp as an awareness campaign.

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 www.barackobama.com.

Check out this other political related poster he created and I think is still available

    I like it. Fairey should do a poster on O, too!
    ALBUQUERQUE – Oprah is on the way.

    On Sunday, Oprah Winfrey is returning to the presidential campaign trail to headline a California event for Senator Barack Obama. The Obama campaign has yet to announce details, but people familiar with the event say the television talk show magnate will join Michelle Obama at a campaign rally in the Los Angeles area.

[…] Tarik Moody, a graduate of Howard University’s School of Architecture in Washington, DC, maintains this design-centric blog with lots of great visuals and a clear-headed vision. Post-of the-moment has got to be his got "Obey Obama!" poster, probably the finest graphic icon produced by anyone furing this campaign season (for any candidate).  See it at https://diggin88nine.wordpress.com/2008/02/01/obey-obama/ […]
