Shepard Fairey's Iconic Obama Image Makes Time Magazine’s ‘Person of The Year’ Cover

“Tomorrow my illustration for Time Magazine’s ‘Person of The Year’ hits the newsstands,” writes…do we even need to say his name?
Yep, two of our favorite people, Obama and Fairey, have made it onto the cover of one of the most well-known publications in the world (although they are a bit behind us, as we got Fairey on our cover way back in 2007, but who's keeping tabs?)
Overall, it’s a proud day, but Shepard openly shares his mixed feelings on the subject in a refreshingly honest and thoughtful post on his site:
“While I’m very honored to be validated by a periodical that is nothing short of an American institution, the moment is bittersweet because I’m very disappointed by Obama’s appointment of Rick Warren to deliver his invocation during Obama’s inaugural address,” Fairey writes.
