"Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them."

cooler than me.

this piece, "Love Unites", by Shephard Fairey is one of my favorites. Shephard Fairey is an artist [or graphic artist, whatever floats your boat] who's known for doing political art and stenciling. FUN FACT: he's also DJs by the name DJ Diabetic and Emcee Insulin! His famous print "Obey Giant" has been made into short documentary film ["Andre the Giant has a Posse"] and into a clothing line. His latest famous piece the Obama "HOPE" poster has been on the cover of Times Magazine and put into the US National Portrait Gallery.
