WHO AM I? WHAT IS THIS PROJECT ABOUT?

My name is Tommy Lee aka SirTom Foolery. I'm a Painter, Designer, and Creative Director. I have spent the past three months in the studio almost every day painting this tribute to Bernie Sanders because of his fearless work towards shifting the consciousness of our country. My desire is to use my talents to contribute to this revolution. To date, I am most proud of this painting. I call it, “Bern the Trump Card!” The two people in this piece, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, represent two very different directions for OUR country. One is the mindlessly continued status quo while the other represents an all inclusive and energized call to action to create systems that work for the many, and not just for the few people on top.

WHERE DO THE FUNDS GO?
I will take $1 from each print sold to go directly towards the Bernie Sander's campaign. In addition to raising funds and encouraging voter turnout, my ultimate goal is to get the original painting to Sanders as a gift for everything he has done in his career to speak up for the voiceless. I have already sent the first $99 check, and I can't wait to send more! The rest of the money raised through the prints will cover the cost of the prints, shipping material, painting material, paying my video Director, and renting a large van to transport the painting to Bernie. People are excited, and they are calling for change. I would love for you to join us and be an active voice in this revolution. We would be forever grateful for your contribution in helping us achieve these goals.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION!

Hello everyone! I just wanted to get you all an update of what going on with the Bern the Trump Card project. For those who have not heard yet I was invited to NY to be apart of the Art of Revolution put on by the Bernie Sanders Campaign this past weekend. The art was mind blowing and NY has been so open to me. The crew took the gallery experience to the next level! On Saturday afternoon the doors opened and it was packed! Guys with secret service vibes setup in the gallery that night and all of a sudden they ask the artist to stand behind a small stage. I figured for a photoshoot, but it was bc Bernie Sanders himself made a special visit to the art gallery and surprised all of us! More details to come.

So I was so inspired by that little bird landing on Bernies podium today I had to make this design. CHECK IT OUT!! Its called "Bernie- Put a Bird on it!" This is funny because about 2 days ago I changed my facebook header to this picture with the bird!
