The real deal

Another Obama post? I know there have been many posts and articles about my support for Barack Obama, but this article is the most thorough history of my involvement. I also thought it would be good to re-post the free Obama vector art download. I don’t think I’m being overly dramatic when I say that this great country is in danger of remaining in the hands of lunatics who have shrewdly manipulated the bewildered herd into thinking the Republicans are the “populist” or “family values” party. McCain has nine houses and he calls Obama an “elitist”. I’m so disheartened that people are falling for that crap. Let’s push things forward.

EPV Book out now!

E Pluribus Venom collects a large body of work produced by Shepard Fairey and presented at the Jonathan Levine gallery during his massive exhibition in the summer of 2007. Serving as more than just an exhibition catalog, this book expounds upon themes presented in the show. The title “E Pluribus Venom” which translates “Out of many, poison” is derived from ìE Pluribus Unumî (out of many, one) an early motto adopted by the U.S. Government which appears on U.S. currency. The artist’s thesis is that many becoming one, or a loss of power and influence of the individual in favor of homogeny is a symptom of a society in decline. “E Pluribus Venom” is comprised of artworks designed to question the symbols and methods of the American machine and American dream and also celebrate those who oppose blind nationalism and war. Some of Faireyís works use currency motifs or a Norman Rockwell aesthetic to employ the graphic language of the subjects they critique. Other works use a blend of Art Nouveau, hippie, and revolutionary propaganda styles to celebrate subjects advocating peace.

144 pages, full color, 12″ x 9 1/2″, This book comes signed by Shepard Fairey, $35

Same situation, different perceptions

My friend Laura Dawn from Move On sent this to me. I should add that Laura was instrumental in the Manifest Hope gallery in Denver. Many thanks to Laura an Move On. The hypocrisy revealed by the semantic manipulation below is food for thought. Every time I’ve heard Palin speak I’ve been baffled by her lunacy and my pain can only be offset by humming James Brown… “like a dull knife that just ain’t cuttin’, she’s just talkin’ loud, but ain’t sayin’ nuthin'” Can we please make a case for sanity this election?
