Shepard Fairey gets loaded on Colbert Report. [Obama]

Via on Jan 18, 2009

Shepard Fairey is the thoughtful, disobedient man behind OBEY in a “land founded on dissent.” He’s the street artist behind the now-iconic poster of Obama (above). Recently, he stopped by the Colbert Report: “Ch-Change!, you must be getting rich of this!”

“Well, I benefit from this in other ways…like Obama’s gonna be President in a few days.”
