L.A. street artist and Obama “Hope” poster creator Shepard Fairey has turned Trayvon Martin into an icon. The artist was commissioned by Ebony magazine a few months ago to create the piece; Fairey only just shared the image on his blog, saying he had to keep the artwork under wraps until the issue hit newsstands earlier this week. (Ebony is owned by Time Inc., the parent company of TIME and TIME.com.)
