EBONY Magazine Commissions Street Artist Shepard Fairey to Illustrate Trayvon Martin

Graphic designer and illustrator Shepard Fairey, who created Barack Obama’s 2009 “Hope” poster, has illustrated a new figure: Trayvon Martin. via [Fairey’s blog:](http://obeygiant.com/headlines/ebony-magazine-travon-martin) I have followed Trayvon’s case closely and I think any compassionate human being can relate to Trayvon as a brother or son and would want to see a thorough investigation into the killing of an unarmed person. In my portrait I wanted to emphasize Trayvon’s humanity as well as the public outcry for a just investigation into his death.
