Best Conversation Ever

Hi Everybody,

I've entered another contest! If you could go vote for me that would be so great! You can vote once a day! If you end up entering the contest yourself please shoot me an email so that I can vote for you! And I will! Everyday! :)


The contest was about who your Best Conversation Ever would be with. It's 40% based on votes and 60% based on the jury. If I can land in the Top 100 my entry will make it to the jury where they will decide on the 5 winners. And based on my entry and my person that I'd like to talk to I think I may have a pretty good chance. Here is my entry:

Shepard Fairey Has a Posse: Our Generations Andy Warhol

My Best Conversation Ever would be with Shepard Fairey. Shepard started out as a street artist and was most famously known for his "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" campaign of stickers, posters and spray stencils that have appeared all over the world. Shepard has moved from having his work "illegally" in the streets to having his HOPE image of then presidential hopeful and now president, Barack Obama, housed in the Smithsonian. Using his skill, knowledge, and talent Shepard made a stunningly beautiful and now iconic image of Obama in hopes of bringing the word out about the then little known presidential candidate. Shepard helmed a grass roots movement unlike any seen before in recent history and through his art he helped decide the current president of the United States. He has went on to use this notoriety to champion the numerous causes that he has always supported. Through his art, his design studio, his OBEY clothing brand, and his gallery Shepard continues to inform and educate his massive audience. Shepard Fairey is an artist, businessman, philanthropist, humanitarian, dedicated family man, champion of free speech and my hero. I would love the chance to tell him that.

Thanks for all of your votes. I really appreciate it.
