Finally wrapped up the painting to the private book release party at Vans HQ. The book showcase several decades of "athletes" and art under the iconic shoe company and OTW logo. They asked a handful of artists who have been involved in previous Vans art projects to contribute a piece and their intrepetation of the logo and the influence it had on their lives. I chose to represent the first vans shoe I wore when shredding on my bmx, freestyle bike or skating(the blue/yellow checker slip on in front). Since then I have worn numerous slip ons as my daily shoe. I also designed a bunch in the painting that I would like to wear.
