creative commies

inspired by xeni jardin’s flag on boingboing (illustrating matt bradleys copyleft idea) i whipped up this bit of soviet constructivist goodness this morning (click the thumbnail for full artwork). for those of you who missed it, bill gates, of ludicrously rich fame, decided recently it would be a good idea to equate free culture advocates with communists, or to be more specific “new modern-day sort of communists.” how generous of the sort of modern-day robber baron. anyhow, the image is a rework of an old soviet poster which you can see here. Greg DeKoenigsberg (lead web engineer for Red Hat Network) expressed interest in a t-shirt. i’m reluctant to do a cafepress style tee, but if anyone else has interest leave a comment and we’ll go from there. forward the cause comrades!
