Fairey has truly been catapulted into infamy with this campaign. Here's a bunch of parodies of the work.

Fairey: I’m very happy that the HOPE poster has become such a point of reference. One parody that is not included is something I consider a high point in my career for pop culture recognition. Mad Magazine’s new cover is a spoof of my Obama image. I loved Mad as a kid. I think Mad’s satire heightened my understanding of irony and hypocrisy. I’m very excited to be a part of Mad’s history.

Here's our story on Shepard earlier this month.
