Yeah, I couldn’t help myself. I made this Barack Obama poster, an homage to Shepard Fairey‘s original.

    I was trying to think of a parody of the “HOPE” poster on the way to work. I’m glad I did a search before messing around in Photoshop. The internets got to it before I did. Nice job.

    Hi Emma-

    I don’t sell the posters- I just made this image a few inches tall to put it on the web, and wouldn’t know the first thing about printing it as a real poster.

    If you want to somehow make a copy of the TAUPE poster, I don’t mind… although if you’re making them in order to sell them, I suppose I, and Shepard Fairey, the original creator of the HOPE poster, should each get a cut!

    As for the other HOPE-style posters- the red/blue Obama one or the funny spoof ones, etc…. well, you could try to track down the original creators.

    Good luck!

    Nice to know someone is thinking on my frequency.

    Good Job. Has a Sepia appeal.

    “I know Arianna doesn’t like it,” [Obama] said lightly. “But I like taupe.” from: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/17/magazine/17obama-t.html

  10. I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome web log!
