Shepard Fairey Designs 'Occupy Hope' Poster, Replaces Obama's Face With 'V for Vendetta' Mask
Update: Our sister blog in New York noticed last week that Fairey had removed the "Mr. President" language from his Occupy HOPE poster after engaging in a swashbuckling back-and-forth with "an Occupy Wall Street organizer" on OWSnews.org. Though Fairey doesn't agree with the organizer's critique in its entirety -- namely, the part where he accuses the artist of helping Obama co-opt Occupy Wall Street -- he was apparently humbled enough to dive back into Photoshop for some tweaks.
The revised version, which Fairey has file-named "final," for what it's worth:
Of course, this probably doesn't appease the unimpressed Anonymous crowd, from whom we received dozens of emails alleging Fairey had copied their "Truth Will Out" campaign for Wikileaks.
