The Anti Fairey Movement
Just Spotted this. An equally stunning idea pulled from Shepard's campaign poster's controversy. If you are not aware, the controversy stems from Shepard using/stealing (dependent on your view) from AP's photos to create his poster. Frankly, he did steal the image and heavily altered it, both sides have a case, however, as any smart Art Director/Photographer/Designer knows, Shepard could have easily avoided the whole issue. Either way, this is as great a statement, even if it is a rip off of Shepard's work. The poster is a teaser for Armando Iannucci’s In The Loop, the feature-length spin-off from his wonderful political comedy The Thick Of It. It is almost as good as this.
