We stopped by a packed house last night in NYC for the special opening of Shepard Fairey's Harmony & Discord exhibition at Pace Prints, featuring Shepard's first works in handmade paper, all created in the Pace Editions studios in New York. Mixed with the 26th Street Block Party and the Frieze Art Fair, it was a big turn out and some of our favorite Fairey work to date.

A few weeks ago, we were contacted by filmmaker Julian Marshall and his project, OBEY THE GIANT, what is being called the "first narrative film" about Shepard Fairey and his Obey Giant street art campaign. Yesterday, Marshall launched a Kickstarer to finish the project, to gain funds to pay for editing, sound design and mix, vfx and wire removal, score, and color correction.

You know you have become part of the pop-culture lexicon when you have made it onto "The Simpsons."

Hey, Banksy already did the Simpsons opener, let's bring some other street art heavyweights onto the scene.

On January 12, 2012, at a random time during the morning, Pacific Standard time, Shepard Fairey will be releasing a print of his new TIME Magazine cover for person of the year. That distinction went to "the protestor," so Shepard is releasing the Occupy Protestor print.

This isn't the first time that Shepard Fairey (Jux cover artist, November 2007), but perhaps this year has the strongest sentiment. For their annual Person of the Year issue, TIME Magazine chose "The Protestor," and had Shepard create the cover art for the special honor. Looks good in our book.
