Shepard Fairy, Obey Giant and the 11th Hour Action Campaign

August 16, 2007

“I wanted to write a long explanation of why I’m doing this print to help promote the movie the 11th Hour and to generate funds for the 11thhouraction.com. Unfortunately, I’m short on time and so is planet Earth as we know it. Basically the film expands on the Earth crisis explained in an Inconvenient Truth. Global warming, deforestation, pollution, dependence on petroleum, and over -population. The film puts these issues in frightening perspective but also shows there are solutions. Skip the next Rob Sneider movie and to see the 11th Hour and you’ll be both avoiding pollution and educating yourself about it. If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for MY kid! Thanks”

(PS: this poster is also FOR SALE on this site!)

Shepard Fairy is the creator of the famous underground icon simply known as Obey Giant, and has been a hero of mine for some time. Obey stickers appear on street corners, stop signs and tshirts around the globe. With this image he has successfully brought this artistic message and experiment in phenomenology to the public sphere … I’m thrilled that he has decided to participate in the 11th Hour Action Campaign and I can’t wait to see these posters and stickers up everywhere in the world and on the web!
