Personally, as an artiste, I know my work isn’t finished until 1) my mom calls to tell me how disappointed she is in me or 2) I get a cease & desist letter for copyright infringement. So, what does it mean if you get a C&D from iconoclast street artist Shepard Fairey for your parody of his senescent work. Well, for Baxter Orr, it means you can def clock out for the day my brother and celebrate a job well done. And for Shepard, i think it means you’re basically finished too.
Update: For a photo of the print that launched as many as one C&D click here.
