I dropped by Donehue Direct this morning and saw Wesley and Joel Sawyer and the gang in their expanded digs in the ancient walkup on Main Street.
And the thing that impressed me most was the sticker I saw, which you can see above, on a door. Wesley said he picked it up at a head shop or some such during his travels.
It looks like it’s been around awhile, but this was the first time I had seen, and enjoyed, it. Here’s what I was able to find out about it:
This very clever poster is the work of graphic artist Tim Doyle and obviously parodies the previously omnipresent “Change” poster of now-President Obama. It was printed as a limited edition 18×24 inch poster which Transformer fiends snapped up for $30 without hesitation. There was even glow in the dark version which disappeared just as quickly. If you’re a similarly afflicted Transformers nut, keep your eyes on Nakitomi, where a reprint may happen if demand is heavy enough. Freaks.
Here’s the direct link for a 16X20 poster version if you want to shell out $25. The one I saw on the door was more like 4X5.
The creator of the original Obama Change poster is being sentenced today for “destroying documents and fabricating others in a civil lawsuit he brought against The Associated Press in 2009”.
I guess he better HOPE the judge has a CHANGE of heart.
Or things won’t look good going FORWARD 🙂
