ROLE: Designer / Featured Illustrator
With the success of the NBA All Star illustrations, I was commissioned by Solecollector.com | Complex Media. to recreate the Fabolous 5 players and their sneakers that influenced sneaker culture during their runs in the NCAA. The players were Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Jalen Rose, Mike Bibby and Mateen Cleaves. The focus was not only on the players but their sneakers, featuring classic kicks from brands like Converse, Reebok, and Nike. These illustrations can be seen in full in the article "The Most Memorable NCAA Teams in Sneaker History."
These illustrations were also featured on SoleCollector's instagram account and reach over 13000 likes.
This was the second project done for Solecollector.com. The focus of this commission was on the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA's). Illustrating the iconic hip-hop figures during their appearances at the VMA's throughout the years. The illustrations also featured the historic sneakers they were wearing as well. Artists like Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and Eminem were just a few figures of the collection. The rest can be seen in full in the article "An Illustrated Guide to the Best Sneaker Moments in VMA History."
