OBEY Clothing is offering T-shirt preorders of Shepard’s illustration entitled ‘Angel of Hope and Strength.’ This shirt will fall under the OBEY Awareness campaign in which OBEY US will donate its profits from the sale of these shirts.
“I created this art piece, ‘Angel of Hope and Strength,’ to celebrate the courage of healthcare workers, and generally symbolize the spirit of hope, strength, compassion, and resilience that we can all find in ourselves and share collectively. I created this art first in conjunction with Rhode Island’s Governor, Gina Raimondo’s project for RIArts.org, and then launched globally with Amplifier. It’s a tough time for everyone right now, but we will all fare better if we summon the better angels of our nature. As always, thanks for caring.” -Shepard
