Ironic Sans: In a political campaign far, far away...
In the fall of 2008 a single work of art reignites the ongoing dialogue on the issue of fair use and the arts. In this case it is the image of Luke Skywalker (Star Wars/Mark Hamill) placed within a graphic the context Shepard Fairey's famous Obama Hope 2008 U.S. Presidential campaign poster. The result is many things, parody, political commentary, pop iconography, and idol worship.
Smart art can be found herein, along with a star-spangled helping of humor, hope and stick-to-itiveness. Just in time for the 2009 election season . . .
I am not generally a tank shirt person (aka the wife beater) but this grey one with the Palestinian Woman on the front is intriguing, as if she is peaking out of this guys inner being. Way cool tank from Shepard Fairey.
This book has the wonderful artwork as well as a few stories and articles that derive from the works of Henry Rollins and his artist. If you enjoy street art as well as propaganda this book is what you should indulge yourself in.
sold out everywhere else, of course...
