Please tell us a little about you.
My name is Adam, as an artist I am also known as adho1982.
Where do you live and what do you do?
I live in Macclesfield in the UK and have been designing t-shirts for the past 3 years.
Art- your passion, or living, or both?
Over the past 3 years it has gradually gone from just a passion to a living as well.
Please tell us about your most favorite shirt.
My most recent purchase and currently my favorite is a postcard style design based on the game Bioshock Infinite. It's called "Greetings from Columbia".
Your childhood dream? Favorite character?
As a child I always saw myself being involved in art in the future. Unfortunately I had to work a boring day job for 10 years before I was able to find a way in to creating art for a living. My favorite character has always been Boba Fett from Star Wars.
What do you do the best? The worst?
I like to think my art is one of my strengths, but I have a lot of ambition to improve this skill. I am useless at sports, all sport.
