You Can Purchase All The HOPE You Need

Shepard Fairey is by far one of my favorite graphic artists in the game. His contemporary pieces are legendary (Andre the Giant Has a Posse, OBEY) and his take on Obama has created on of the most iconic campaign images in recent history. Well, thanks to a request by Russell Simmons, Fairey is auctioning off one of three HOPE posters for Art For Life, an annual event which benefits Simmons' Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. So far the poster has raised over $35,000 for the charity, but I'm sure the number will creep over $50,000 by tomorrow when the auction ends.
All I know is that if I had the cash, the poster would definitely be hanging in my home.
