  1. I actually really like this. Way to go Fairey.

  2. Offset print? Getting lazy on his older days 😛
    But it’s actually a quite nice motive for a change.

  3. This is a pretty solid print. I probably would have grabbed this had it been a screen print. Either way, I dig it.

  4. eh.

    it’s just a photo of Jasper’s original oil painting with some effects on it. I’m getting tired of this whole take an original and put the obey face on it and make my thousands mentality.

  5. boo.

  6. I love it – and prey tell where did Jasper Johns get this idea from ….

    Maybe that big fricking flag up on every Texan Toyota car sales lot ?
    Plagiarism is the basis of all culture my print-art friend.

  7. @Moog: so if I make an exact copy of this piece, screen print it instead of offset, and scribble “to Moog with love from Shep” you’ll gimme $35 for it?
    I’ll get you my paypal info. 🙂

  9. I love that Sheps giving himself “props” in this print.. Its like he wants us to think that now hes so big, that he is as recognizable and important as may day….

    Its like this is supposed to be a movie poster for his most important work to date..

    “MAYDAY” the movie.. An Artists saga..

    Created, Produced, Written, and Edited by none other than “radical” and “controversial” artist Shepard Fairey

    Wow shep, being a tad bit narcissistic these days? gimme a break..

  10. It is a show print Natron. What is not to get?

  11. i think you can take an image and if you change 30% of the original then you are cool to call it yours…dont quote on that!

  12. looks very wal mart esque

  13. Texan Toyota car sales lot? WTF does Texas have to do with American pride? If you had any clue it would be the Texas flag not the Stars and Stripes

  14. @ deneyterrio – You can always tell if the car lot is American made cars or not by the amount of US flags fluttering. Toyota seem to lead the flag count from where I am looking 🙂

  15. very nice!

  16. it looks like the posters the met puts out for there art exhibits. Which to me is boring

  17. meh. Call me when you’ve got a 25-screen print, Shep.

  18. i wonder what he thinks about so many of his fans hating his work now. it’s obvious that this site is huge and word must get back to him. why can’t he just do better work?

    i just finished seth godin’s book linchpin, and he kept on brining out sheps name over and over again…. it drove me crazy.

    sigh, i wish for the old days, when bush was in charge. …his work was good then.

    obama’s “change” made him lazy, lol.
