current political climate. shep's imagery and prints for Obama made a big impact as does this one.

And the fact that they gave the image away for groups and individuals to use for protest etc. makes the limited edition silk screen printed ones signed by artists very valuable.

It got a lot of exposure during the Women's March on Washington and in newspaper and magazine ads.

Too young to remember the Obey Mania of 08-09, I presume.

Just a quickie, were the s/n screen prints shipped direct from Obey or from the Amplifier Foundation?

My shipping label is from the Amplifier org which is in Seattle, and there is a 2nd signature on the print, which looks to be Aaron's.

I know this isn't exactly what you mean. I couldn't wait to frame it. Love it!
