NEW YORK (AP) - On buttons, posters and Web sites, the image was everywhere during last year's presidential campaign: A pensive Barack Obama looking upward, as if to the future, splashed in a Warholesque red, white and blue and underlined with the caption HOPE.

Designed by Shepard Fairey, a Los-Angeles based street artist, the image has led to sales of hundreds of thousands of posters and stickers, has become so much in demand that copies signed by Fairey have been purchased for thousands of dollars on eBay.

12k upload marker passed! Artists special today

Just uploaded a large chunk of my photos from the past few weeks here in East Europe. And, along with a pile of submissions from artists and photographers, Stencil Archive has passed the 12,000 photo marker! Now that uploading photos online is super easy, I appreciate everyone's participation in this site even more. I am posting to other sites, but only give out 2 or 4. You do know that Flickr/Yahoo owns your photos don't you? Once you upload? Check the agreement you OK'd!

Many, many artists uploaded today. Not everything from Hamburg, Berlin, and Vienna is up yet. Will get to the rest this week or maybe next week back in the USA.

Thanks again for a great mini-tour of the EU. Appreciate the crowds, the interest, the conversations, and the love of spray paint art......
