Shepard Fairey does portrait of Paul Watson

Shepard Fairey recently did a portrait of Paul Watson, which will be available as a fine-art piece and screen-printed photo.[^1] It will be on display at the Sea No Evil Art Show 2009 on Saturday, August 29, 2009 in Riverside, CA. [^1]: Sea Shepherd asked permission to provide Fairey with the photo, and I agreed.

Shepard's portrait of Paul was done using one of my photographic portraits of Paul as a model.

I took the photo on January 6, 2009, while on campaign with Sea Shepherd in the Southern Ocean. The Japanese whaling spotter vessel, the Kyoshin Maru No. 2, is in the background.
