Yum

This handmade, painted sign for a bake sale has been sitting in our archives for a while. We were hoping to find more information about it before posting, but it is just too cute to wait any longer.

The original photo

The image above was actually cut/resized from the full photo that you see below. That version was found Adam Lisagor’s blog lonely sandwich. Anyone know where it came from?

    Hi. I painted that sign in ’08 as part of our huge neighborhood Obama Bake Sale for the Swing States campaign. It’s obviously a riff on Shepard Fairey’s iconic image — and I contacted him for permission to tweak it. The sign helped raise $7,500 that day, and my signage around the neighborhood spurred 4 other bake sales in following weeks which raised a total of $35,000!

    Here’s a clip of me painting the sign > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9DTNazHZtE&list=UUU23UVo3yyDWuShGGUetJGw&index=35&feature=plcp

    Sadly, the sign was stolen the night after the bake sale. Lame.

    UPDATE 2012: we just had our Reelect Obama Bake Sale, raising another $5,200 in our driveway in 5 hours. Pretty good!
