TIME's 2011 Person of the Year - Fairey Designs Cover

Back in October, I asked on this blog whether Shepard Fairey would design the Occupy movement? It seems like the answer is: Yes! It turns out that he did the amazing cover for TIME Magazine's 2011 Person of the Year issue, naming The Protester as their choice. It goes without saying that both the choice of topic and cover art illustrator meet my approval. The Internet is bringing about monumental changes to societies around the world and artists like Fairey and scholars like the late Marshall McLuhan are at the forefront in this "revolution" of the 99%. Can't wait to see where this is going...
