Human Being Joe-Medina

Artist Jim Joe & Photographer Jamie-James Medina Support Bernie Sanders Campaign With “Human Being” Poster

(AllHipHop News) You have probably never seen Jim Joe’s face, but you definitely know his work. The elusive Montreal native was commissioned by Kanye West for the Yeezus iTunes page, and he designed the highly memed cover art for Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

Joe has now teamed with acclaimed photographer/video director Jamie-James Medina to create new artwork in support of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The poster features a portrait of Sanders captured by Medina while the Vermont senator was on the campaign trail in Iowa. Joe then inscribed the phrase “HUMAN BEING – BERNIE 2016” onto the photo.

Medina stated about the collaboration:

You’re hearing the same speech several times a day from every candidate, but I had a moment where I thought that to not support Senator Sanders and his campaign during this election is to give up on these kids ever having a President that does not represent establishment politics. I quickly made a decision that I’m going to take a photograph of the Senator and make him look presidential. That’s the image I sent to Jim Joe and he very quickly sent me back the final design. Together, we felt that to be able to describe a politician as a ‘human being’, and to believe it, was almost revolutionary.
