Shepard Fairey Roundup

obey

With all the “hoopla”, news going around these days, and me discovering the above image from Shepard Fairey, I thought I’d collect some of the more interesting links that I came across in the last couple weeks. It’s far from a complete story but adds some more substance to an artist/designer that is doing some interesting stuff. I’m sure that’s there’s a million other posts that I could refer to, so if you think there’s something I should add to this list please let me know. (I’ll be adding new links to the top as they come in)

    I came across this article last week which put a few things into perspective.

    Also, his “Adopt” poster benefiting rescue dogs sold out on Friday Feb 6. You can still down load and print the image though. More info here…

    M – Thanks for sharing. I've done some “appropriation” in my time, but I've always felt uneasy about it. The plagiarism links are quite revealing.

    Have you been following the Shepard Fairey case? What do you think of this?

    We are all doomed if that is considered fair use! Sucks that it is the AP but it could have been another artist just as easy.
