This gives the protest 15 times more power than originally planned which will spread across the country on Donald Trump, inauguration day, January 20th, with its message that embodied the ethos of the times – “HOPE.”

Interestingly enough the Obey Giant refused to add, Trump’s face to any of his work instead moving the focus onto the American people.

Shepard designed three portraits for the campaign, Chicano graphic artist Ernesto Yerena and Colombian American muralist Jessica Sabogal designed an additional one poster each.
