After his vastly praised Obama poster, Shepard Fairey has been asked to design the Earth Hour poster for 2009 that you see above (what a great design by the way). From the research I have done on this oh-so-talented illustrator, it shows that he has much care for the environment, world matters, and the way our earth is evolving. It is great seeing an artist focus so hard on using their work for the greater good, and Shepard Fairey has really hit the spot. Here are his thoughts:
“Of all the crises we’re facing right now, I think the environmental one is the biggest. Bigger than the economy, bigger than terrorism. It’s serious, but I’m hopeful about it, because I feel like every single person can make a difference and be part of the greater solution. If I can use my art in any way to have a positive impact, I’m glad to do it.”
