Obama Drama

Update on those 50 buck Shepard Fairey prints which eventually went for 1000+ on eBay: Apparently, Fairey and Co were pretty disappointed about that, too:
It looks like we were naive in believing that people would be true and do what they actually said they would do. All those that received these street pasters knew that they were not to be auctioned on EBAY or sold anywhere else. Its extremely discouraging when we intentionally make Shep’s art obtainable and affordable for all and in turn are exploited and taken advantage of by GREEDY people. We put 100% of the poster proceeds back into the Obama campaign.
They do plan on making more prints available soon, 600 this coming Thursday.

Wonder if they know about these t-shirts?
