Shepard Fairey…the guy that captured the visual campaign of Obama and former “vandal” of other peoples property, by taggeing the shit out of it, is now out in daylight…still tagging.
The corner of Bowery & Houston in NYC on a wall that used to showcase Keith Haring’s original 1984 Day-Glo mural is now the home for what is said to be a promo for his upcoming show May Day at NYC’s Deitch Projects …but it sure looks like an OBEY ad to a few bystanders.
In this shot of Fairey…he was lining up his stencil when a guy walked past us and yelled, “Nice ad for a clothing company Shep.”
Hours before the completion of the mural and I took a few pics:
I also caught up with artist Alex Gardega who traded a piece of his work with Fairey for this autographed jammie:

This event is open to the public, and the collection is supposed to “make every woman feel like a movie star.” That’s right, we can all buy ‘n’ boogie. Will we see you there?
Us New Yorkers are lucky. Tomorrow night is the 24 pop-up shopping party for Zac Posen’s Go International collection for Target.

Special performances by The Like and DJ Kid America, DJ The Other Will, and DJ Luisiul. We wonder if any celebrities will stop by. Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Lucy Liu, and Demi Moore are among the zillions of Posen fans.

Check out this video of Matt from ItsBongoBoy interviewing Johnny Cupcakes, who was in NYC last week to speak at New York University.
The entrepreneur talks about starting his company, and starting your own business. He reacts to his growing following, and also talks about being copied by larger brands.
Johnny Cupcakes has collaborated with Looney Tunes and The Hundreds, among others. He started out as a guy in a hard-core band, selling his t-shirts on tour. Now, he’s doing a Suitcase Tour, driving around the US in a van, and selling t-shirts out of actual suitcases. His first stop is April 2nd in SoHo, NYC.
Watch out for him this Friday at 8pm on Howard Street!
