Though the name may not hold as much clout as Kennedy, Shepard Fairey has apparently made his choice for the next President of the United States.

Throwing his weight and talent behind the junior senator from Illinois, the illustrator has produced two striking posters with the man's likeness and main slogans. He's offering the 24" x 36" silkscreens for $50 a pop on his website with an aim to get its iconic image across the nation in time for Super Tuesday (5 February) and beyond. Proceeds will go to a larger, statewide (California) poster campaign. Limited to an edition of 350, they'll be available this Wednesday, 30 January 2008. UPDATE: They are, of course, sold out.

Note: This does not constitute an endorsement by this writer or CH, we just think Fairey lending his unabashedly propagandistic work to a historic moment makes it all the more momentous.
