More than a year ago when Shepard Fairey and I were discussing some possible future collaborations, I came up with the idea of doing this one to celebrate, what would be, Henry's monumental 50th birthday. The quintessential punk Renaissance man, friend, and inspiration to many. It was easy for him to agree, Rollins through one of my classic photographs would be a great subject.
His actual birthday is 2.13.61, as is the name of his publishing company (who were the first to distribute my book FUCK YOU HEROES).
Henry is doing a special tour to celebrate as well. Go here to check for dates, he'll be in New York City tonight and tomorrow (i'll be there!), and in his original hometown of Washington DC on the 13th.
This limited edition collaborative poster, signed by Henry, Shepard, and myself, will be made available on his birthday, at the Obey Giant web site. They usually sell out pretty quick, so good luck grabbing one if you're interested.
Here's the original photo that appeared in my book FUCK YOU TOO.
