Shepard Fairey Cover: Time Person of the Year – The Protester

December 15, 2011


Shepard Fairey has designed the latest cover of TIME magazine for their Person of the Year issue which this year honors the “Protester”. If you remember, Mr. Obey also created the cover for the 2008 rendition where the annual award went to President Obama. The choice for this year is certainly a representation of world events from Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street, activism has hit an all-time high in recent memory and who better to commemorate this than an artist who is a true activist at heart. Awesome cover we must say!
