You can still buy them from the source... of course the market will be flooded.

Amplifier posted this on their facebook page:
"This fake site has stolen our art and is posing as a crowdfunding campaign for us. PLEASE FLOOD THEIR BOARDS AND POSTS with messages to stop trying to profit from our art."

Who are these TeeChip EBers anyway? Didn't we all just sign something to get them banned from FB?

Think people dropping the $ on these aren't the kind to be too worried about it.

Was a great week tho

Or you can still buy the original unsigned offsets from the source. Two of each print, total of 10 offset prints for $100... cheaper per print than you printing out on your own.

The latest update from the Amplifier Organization is interesting:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/am ... ts/1788418

Excerpt from update:
"We are Resilient. We are Indivisible. We are Greater Than Fear. We will Defend Dignity, and we will Protect Each Other. This rallying cry is just the beginning. Let it be a reminder to us all to stay vigilant and mobilized.

These images and this project "appeal to the higher angles of our nature,” we were told by President Obama, when he called after this project funded. And we will need them to remind us of those higher angles again as this road passes through dark times ahead.

We will continue to move these message throughout the country, with a program to give free art to any school or library that wants it in America. And we will expand this series of images with Shepard, Ernesto, and Jessica, but also with dozens of new artists and photographers over the coming year through a series of grants that YOU made possible. And we will find even more ways to distribute these messages from stickers and billboards to street projections.

Here is what we need your help with now:

We are looking for airplanes too wrap if you have one. Preferably commercial. Yes, you read that right, and we won’t rest until we have it.
We are looking for visible walls in high traffic areas in our biggest cities, for banners or murals.
We are looking for the owners of advertising space in rural areas and billboards on rural highways and interstates.
We are looking for advertising partners that are willing to give us a percentage of their corporate social responsibility budget for the year to make space available for this work.
We are looking for printers who will work with us at cost to print for schools that want this work.
If you can do these things please contact us at partners@theamplifierfoundation.org. If you aren’t these people and you cannot do these things, but you know people who can please connect us.

We want these images to be EVERYWHERE, to be a compass, reminding us of our strength when we come together, reminding us of our duty as we march on.

Now the marathon begins. We are ready again today to fight for this, and we will be ready the day after that, and the day after that too. We vow to use every platform we can find, make, or hack to continue this work you helped us start. So keep your heads up and your voices loud!

See you in the streets!

Aaron

Executive Director of The Amplifier Foundation "
