Make That German Shepard Fairey
After creating the definitive political poster with his iconic Barack Obama "Hope" illustration, Echo Park graphic artist Shepard Fairey is marketing a new work for another cause close to his heart. Fairey's Mutts Like Me site offers an "Adopt" poster depicting a somewhat forlorn looking dog, bathed in the same tricolor lighting as candidate Obama. Fairey created the image for AdoptaPet.com's latest campaign. While signed, limited-edition prints are sporadically available for donations, people can also buy regular posters and T-shirts -- or even download the imagery for free.
