Shepard Fairey’s Occupy Hope poster—"Mr President, we HOPE you’re on our side"

Gaius Publius (AMERICAblog):
Shepard Fairey is the man who did the iconic Hope poster that boosted the Obama 2008 campaign.

This is his latest, an Occupy Hope poster for the Occupy campaign. As you can see, his thinking seems to have evolved (h/t Amanda Terkel for the link).

Click the pic for a full-sized GIF image, suitable for reproduction. As Fairey said: "[F]eel free to share it." The rest of Fairey's statement is here.

You don't have to agree with his support for Obama — or his hope — to support his support of Occupy.

(Me, I live in Hope that Obama will Change, but I spend part of my day with fictional characters. Maybe that explains it.)

There's certainly no question that this great image stands on its own.
