Official Inauguration Poster Released By Obama Team: Exclusive

The Barack Obama Inaugural Committee is releasing an official inauguration poster playing off past themes and marking the history of January 20th in a uniquely Obama fashion.

Designed by famed street artist Shepard Fairey, the print, created especially for the 2009 Inauguration, boldly declares "BE THE CHANGE."

Everytime I see one of those posters I think I'm looking at a Soviet/Communist propaganda poster.

No sadly they were either printed by some ad agency with ties to the Rookie...or worse yet printed by the Gov't printing agency.

Both done with our hard earned money.

Everytime I see this particular flavor of poster art, I think of crappy 3D comics (red lens/blue lens system).  They really need to take their art people out and shoot them.

Needless to say this poster  was created by the same "street artist" that produced the original "hope' and "change" posters for the campaign.  I wonder how much the artist will make from the sale of these and how much will go into Der Fuhrers coffers.

Did either  Bush, or Clinton, have innagural posters?  Did Carter or Reagan?

He does look like something out of 30's Germany more than out of Russia or China.  this is very much Leni Reisenthal meets Peter Max.
