Where was Shepherd Fairy interviewed?

In the article regarding the AP demanding compensation for Shepherd Fairy's appropriation of a photograph of Obama for the "Hope" poster, it says:
"I donated an image to them, which they used. It was the one that said "Change" underneath it. And then later on I did another one that said "Vote" underneath it, that had Obama smiling," he said in a December 2008 interview with an underground photography Web site.
Which underground photography website would that be? Googling the quote, or variations of, only brings me this news article.

Sounds like it was juxtapoz which is as underground as you can get.

BTW, the Wiki kinda says that although unattributed Wiki is like making attributions to voices in your head.

Best answer: Juxtapoz provided a lot of coverage regarding the role of underground art in the camapaign (there was a great article in a recent issue, but I can't find it online). I'm at work and YouTube is blocked, but it looks like this is a YouTube video of the Juxtapoz interview with Fairey regarding the "Hope" poster.
