Sneakernews Magazine - Hall of Fame
Illustration for the Hall of Fame section of the Sneakernews Magazine.


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)
