Shepard Fairey Tshirt to support Creative Commons image

Creative Commons has launched its fifth annual fundraising campaign, this time hoping to achieve half a million dollars to assist in its development of alternative copyright licenses.

Artist Shepard Fairey is helping the cause with a remixed CC logo design which you can buy on the fundraiser’s official Tshirt.

Shepard Fairey is well known for using Cultural Artifacts in his graphic design work, mostly due to his infamous Obama “Hope” poster last year. Controversially, he has sued other artists for reusing his own work, so its good to see him supporting the CC bandwagon now.
