It was bound to happen. The original Shepard Fairey run of the CHANGE poster sold out within a day. Now the Obama campaign is doing a 5000 edition of the poster. It sells for $70 each, with the money going toward your $2300 contribution limit.
“I wanted to make an art piece of Barack Obama because I thought an iconic portrait of him could symbolize and amplify the importance of his mission. I believe Obama will guide this country to a future where everyone can thrive and I should support him vigorously for the sake of my two young daughters. I have made art opposing the Iraq war for several years, and making art of Obama, who opposed the war from the start, is like making art for peace. I know I have an audience of young art fans and I’m delighted if I can encourage them to see the merits of Barack Obama.”
