Today Obey announced that Shepard Fairey will be making a guest appearance on The Simpsons show on March 4th.
From his website:
The Simpsons has been one of my favorite shows since the early 90′s. When I was running my screen printing studio in Providence R.I. my crew and I lead a Spartan existence consisting of long hours and a seven day work week. Our only recreational indulgence ritual was to stop work early Sunday evenings to eat dinner together while watching the Simpsons. I’ve always loved the Simpsons blend of humor and social commentary, so it is a huge honor for me to appear as a guest character on the March 4th episode. The story line is great, and they were kind enough to indulge a couple of my dialogue suggestions designed to make the social commentary more pointed(even though I had to make fun of myself to do so). I can’t wait to see it!- Shepard
