THE 008 AND UPPER PLAYGROUND PARTNER WITH SAM FLORES AND MUNK ONE TO SUPPORT BARACK OBAMA
In an ongoing effort to secure Democratic hopeful Barack Obama's presidential bid, The 008 and Upper Playground have collaborated with Sam Flores and Munk One to create two new limited screenprints of each artist's portrait of Obama. The Sam Flores and Munk One posters are part of an ongoing series of artist collaborations in support of Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
The Sam Flores and Munk One limited screenprints are now available for purchase online through www.upperplayground.com. Both posters will be signed and numbered by the artists and are made at a limited quantity of 200, with each retailing for $200. Each poster is a pre-sale item and will not ship until April 21, 2008. All proceeds from the sales of each design from Sam Flores and Munk One Obama posters will go directly to creating more campaign T-shirts, posters and stickers by other artists in support of Obama's bid for President. Currently, the Munk One design is being used in bus shelter and billboard advertisements throughout Philadelphia prior to the primary in Pennsylvania on April 22, 2008.
Upper Playground recently endorsed Obama's campaign by creating posters featuring artwork from The Date Farmers and Mac, as well as printing T-shirts with Shepard Fairey's Obama poster graphics to help support the campaign.
The 008, Sam Flores, Munk One and Upper Playground would like to thank everyone who continues their support of the Barack Obama campaign.

Upper Playground is opening the doors to their Spring/Summer Collection with these two new hoodies from their sister line, superFishal, designed by Jeremy Fish. Mr. Fish's new release remind us of how nice it is to have a new hoodie in that uncertain weather condition of too warm for jacket, too cold for just a tee-shirt. The answer: Grab a zip-up, you're on your way, no worries. The superFishal line will be introducing new tees, hoodies, and accessories in the coming weeks, but these two bangers get you started. Available now at Upper Playground stores worldwide and at Upperplayground.com
