Finally AM would like to be (one of the last) to congratulate Shepard on a job well done. Inspiring an entire generation to take political action and think for progress and change isn’t something that occurs everyday. Usually, it’s the politicians who seek to inspire from their unique position of influence. But using simple guerrilla urban pasting and savvy iconic artistry, Shepard set off a chain reaction at the beginning this year that culminated in the most successful modern day political election and has forever changed the face of this nation.
