I was asked by Sneakernews magazine to create a paper craft illustration for their "hall of fame" section" of a special Japan edition New Balance shoe. Here you can see 2 versions of different illustrations i created.
Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?
My first idea relates to the fact the instagram and it's hunt for likes are a modern day hall of fame in a way. The second idea is referencing crown jewels in a museum.
What were you trying to express?
That a boring shoe can actually look cool. =)
Is it 100% your original work?
Yes. The shoe is made out of paper by me! (Everything else too)
