Barack Obama Commemorative Stickers... FREE
Get your free Barack Obama commemorative sticker designed by groundbreaking artist Shepard Fairey from MoveOn.org. Fairey, the 38-year old street artist knowf for a guerrilla art campaign taht coupled the ominous slogan "Obey" with the face of pro wrestler Andre the Giant, is behind the Obama design that has become synonymous with the Democratic nominee. Fairey looked to Alberto Korda's famed shot of revolutionary Che Guevara to create his red-white-and-blue print of Obama with teh slogan "Progress" which sold out in minutes. After the success of the "Progress" print, Fairey says he was contacted by the Obama campaign to create an offically sanctioned poster in the same style — only this time with a campaign-approved photo and slogan. The new artwork featured teh now-famous "Hope" slogan.
