Check out Shepard's statement on the print, as well as the full artwork below.
I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure. Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in, but it effects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people, but that idea has eroded with the favors owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions. A portion of the proceeds from the “Scale Tipping Services” print will go to two organizations who are fighting against political corruption, and for campaign finance reform. They are rootstrikers.org and unitedrepublic.org. These orgs are doing great work, so please support them! Thanks for caring.

They said it and now they meant it: this isn't just about raising funds. It's also about bringing together the most awesome, most rad, most cray-cray CROWD the world has ever seen -- the Legion of Righteous Comrades! -- to send a message that the world is ready for the return of The Aquabats.
