Burwell Basement Casino

A couple of years back, the lovely Guy Burwell of America told me a great story while we sat drinking coffee in the heart of Hamburg's sleepy red light district.

The story revolved around Guy's father building a sort of cardboard casino for him and his siblings to play in and may (or may not) have involved fleecing the neighbourhood kids out of their pocket money.  Anyway it was one of those stories that sticks with you and I decided to commemorate this great yarn with a tshirt design.

Who knows if it was really true? Perhaps Guy told this story knowing that he would one day get a free shirt out of it. Clever chap.
