This friend is amazing!!! And sweet. I can’t believe the talent that comes out of him.
Enjoy his art and let your eyes melt. Cuz it’s butter.
See what he has for this auction. You won’t be disappointed
What of that supposed law that states, ‘if you alter an image to a “X” degree you have legitimately created a new piece of “art”’? This lawsuit is bogus and the penalty is more obscene than what he’s being accused of doing. That’s the trend line: Lame. We’re on a road to…dare I say? -Waveybrain
At the same time does that mean they sue the Obama campaign folks to for using it. or what about the people that made $$ selling the t-shirts and other merchandise w/this image. ??
Admittance Of Guilt of the Day: After admitting to destroying evidence in order to strengthen his claim that he did not infringe on copyright in creating his iconic “Hope” poster, noted LA-based street artist Shepard Fairey today pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal misconduct and faces up to six months in prison.
Fairey filed a 2009 lawsuit against the Associated Press following allegations that he used one of the news organization’s photos to produce his artwork. The 42-year-old initially claimed he had used a different photo of then-candidate Barack Obama, but soon admitted to lying.
Making matters worse, Fairey tried to cover up the lie by destroying documents and replacing them with fabricated ones. “I was ashamed that I had done these things, and I knew I should have corrected my actions,” he told a judge in Manhattan’s Federal District Court.
The AP settled with Fairey out of court last year.
Sentencing will take place on July 16th. In addition to six months behind bars, Fairey also faces a year’s worth of supervised released and a fine of $5,000.

Using Michael Higgins photos I would age them, abuse, layer, combine, add ripes and design for LADM.
Designs for Foria Int. some used for pj sets sometime I hate that they don’t send me the final result. But I am grateful they pushed me in direction I would have never gone. I just don’t understand why they can’t at least send me what they ended up using the designs for that doesn’t seem right. How professional am I huh?
Here are some samples of my work that I use to do for Skinnie Minnie. Then I freelanced for Foria International. I have been trying to sell at Surtex and Magic. However the industry is or has changed and have seen that stock illustration is more popular. Which is a shame.
I really love working with my hubby who is extremely talented and together we make magic.
My passion these days is photography. love it. i love the adding of textures and aging. I try and apply what I’ve done for my clients in the designs in the past. Don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner for myself.
