Shepard Fairey (the guy that made the now famous Obama HOPE poster) was very quickly accused of stealing by the person who took the original photo on which the image is based. Now, he says that the argument over which photo it is based on has shifted to his admittance of lying on the issue. The point is, this whole issue has been going on since the election and is still going. This joint is getting real. LINK.
Are you a designer? Ever use a photo for reference? Think Shepard was wrong to use the photo like this? Think it’s only an issue because his poster got so popular (I know I do)? Your thoughts! I want them!
