A Shepard Too Far

Dear Shepard Fairey: as human beings we're happy you produced this image for Adopt-a-pet.com and the Dog's Life magazine cover (click for full size). We'd be less thrilled as your brand managers.

Isn't the whole HOPE poster look getting a bit overexposed? Dog Fancy? Really? Maybe check out how you're diluting your own art before suing everyone else for the same crime?

Or better yet just start going in new (but still derivative of Soviet propaganda posters) directions like you did for the gay marriage poster. That was pretty cool.
