This is a design with famous historical Communists partying. I think it’s the Solo cups that really sell it.
Who is and where does tomburns come from?
I’m originally from the state of Tennessee in the USA, but currently live in the state of Arizona. I’ve done artwork my whole life, and really love doing vector art.
How long have you been in the t-shirt world?
Well, I’ve done designs for shirts for over 15 years, but I got involved in threadless.com about 10 years ago, so that’s probably the real genesis of my t-shirt artwork.
What would you suggest to an aspiring t-shirt designer?
Design something you would personally like to wear on a shirt!
What’s a day in the life of tomburns like?
I have a day job creating vector artwork for a company, but once I get home in the afternoon, it’s either back to the computer for more, or binge watching Netflix and eating snacks and drinking beers, haha.
Mac or PC?
MAC at home, PC at work.
