I Hope My Daughter Grows Up to Be Just Like Shakira – A Poem by Shahar Golan



I hope my daughter
Grows up to be
Just like Shakira,
A strong confident woman
That must be caged
Before she can dance
Inside a glittery vagina.




Design for Obama: The TASCHEN Book – Follow-up #6

Design for Obama book launch at TASCHEN New York:
On November 4th, the one-year anniversary of Barack Obama’s historic election, TASCHEN New York hosted Spike Lee, Aaron Perry-Zucker, and Steven Heller to celebrate the launch of their book DESIGN FOR OBAMA.
A crowd of over 250 fans showed up to meet the editors, including over 25 of the book’s contributors. Some contributors even flew in for the event from as far as Seattle, Toronto, and the Dominican Republic! Additionally, around 15 members of the press were in attendance, including representatives from Maxim, New York Daily News, Rachel Ray, Metropolitan Home, The Source, Trace, Allure, Fortune, Teen Vogue, InStyle, and Vanity Fair.
The TASCHEN New York team would like [to] thank Spike Lee, Aaron Perry-Zucker, and Steven Heller for taking the time to personally greet all their fans.

As a contributing artist to the book I wish I could have attended the book launch, but it was held in NYC and I was held in TLV. Fortunately filmmaker Spike Lee who co-edited the book was gracious enough to pose for a photo with my poster:
