yipeeeee!!!




I was so happy last night I cried! I really hope we all take this as a sign to move forward and contribute to making our society better. I thought the strongest thing Obama said last night in his speech was that we need to all contribute and stop just thinking about ourselves. We need to think of our community and that is how we become strong as a nation. Well para phasing but essentially...

So being an art blog I also think it is so awesome that the most recognized imagery of Obama for this campaign was done by Shepard Fairey - http://www.obeygiant.com/ . He was already a superstar prior to creating the Obama imagery but now.. it is great to see artists using their talents towards a larger social agenda.


Hooray for art! Hooray for democracy!
