The Race to Vandalize Shepard Fairey's Mural

The more popular Shepard "OBEY" Fairey gets with the Obama poster crowd, the less popular he gets with the hardcore street art crowd. Shep just finished up a huge, highly publicized legal mural on Houston Street. How's that looking now?

And it hasn't even been up for a week yet. Ah well. They love you in the West Wing, Shep!
