Well, Hillary Clinton isn’t the only presidential hopeful who is backed by big name designers. Shepard Fairey has endorsed Clinton’s Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders. A huge endorsement if you remember that Fairey was in charge of the ubiquitous and iconic “HOPE” poster done for President Obama’s 2008 campaign. The artist also had great words to say about the candidate, but this isn’t the first time he’s expressed his support. Fairey designed something similar earlier in the month for a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert fundraiser for Bernie Sanders. Purchase the T-shirt on Bernie’s site here for $30 USD.
Bernie Sanders is the real deal and I feel it’s important for me to voice my support for his bid for President. I think he’s the candidate who will look out for the interest of average Americans and the candidate who to me embodies the principles of justice, equality, liberty, and access to the American Dream. I designed these t-shirts based off what I created for the @chilipeppers fundraiser concert, and I’m happy these will help to fund Bernie’s campaign since he absolutely does not take money from corporations or Super PACs. Bernie needs help from people like you and me and I think he’ll look out for the needs of people like you and me. Pick up a t-shirt and help support Bernie Sanders! – Shepard Visit ObeyGiant.com for more info. Shirt also avail. in white. @berniesanders #berniesanders #obeygiant #obey #shepardfairey #feelthebern
