EXCLUSIVE: Shepard Fairey ‘Defend Equality’ Art for Marriage Equality


Shepard Fairey, the graphic designer and illustrator who created the iconic images for Obama’s campaign, has turned his focus to the current fight for equality in the gay and lesbian community, designing a poster intended specifically for use at this weekend’s rallies in California and elsewhere. The image is inspired by the art of a young man named Aaron Harvey. Thanks to the donations of two print sources, posters will be donated for the rally this Saturday at City Hall, which is part of the larger nationwide action called Join the Impact. More info will be forthcoming later today.

Also, I’ll have a huge Prop 8 update with lots of links and news later today. UPDATE: Here it is.
