art for a bigger purpose

Shepard Fairey on the Colbert Report, humbly discussing own awesomeness:

With all the constant fear of copyright and ownership... you can't help being annoyed at yourself for not being as cucumber cool as Shepard Fairey. True selflessness? Enough attention already from other projects (and the assumption everyone will know it was you anyway)? Or the realization that there are more important things than money? Either way, Fairey remains one of my heroes, if only for using art in such a positive way, and inspiring a resurgence of nice political design.
