As you may know I am a Sneakerhead, a Shoe Junkie, and addict for dope kicks. I admit it. I think about shoes probably as much as what studies say men think about sex:

Sex on the Brain

The idea that men think about sex every seven seconds, like the claim that we only use 10 percent of our brains, is often repeated but rarely sourced. The number doesn't bear up against scrutiny. According to theKinsey Report (Sexual Behavior in the Human Male), 54 percent of men think about sex every day or several times a day, 43 percent a few times a week or a few times a month, and 4 percent less than once a month. Even though the Kinsey Report relies on men to self-report on how often they think about sex, it's still eye opening to find that just under half of men aren't even thinking about sex once a day. Clearly, the seven-second rule may be a tad hyperbolic.

Yea that much. I go on sneaker blogs, follow numerous sneaker news accounts on Twitter, have a sneaker release date app on my Blackberry, and have a list of Shoes to Get that has grown over the years. Its an obsession! In some of my previous art you can see the influence of shoes in a majority of the pieces. If they aren't literally added into a piece, I may use a certain colorway to determine my color palette for a piece. It has gotten to the point before where my peers would expect some type of sneaker-related piece from me, especially in high school. So from then on I took a break from have kicks in my art because Im a well-rounded artist. I don't stick to one thing. I have numerous target markets I can connect to. Although I did use colorways to help my color palette.

Im at the point in my life now where I appreciate the joy and benefit of doing series. I have numerous series ideas in my head and my sketchbooks are getting filled up. On another note, what better series to start off with than my roots, sneakers. I am making this series to touch base with my Sneakerhead community. Each piece I do in this series will relate to the sneakers nickname. For example Powder Blue Jordan 9s= a baby holding the 9s upside down with powder spilling out of the shoe onto the floor......... (that's actaullay not a bad idea... lemme write that down) Some colorways of shoes get nicknamed by us, the consumer and those are my models. This series will consume of Jordans and Nikes (the brands that typically get named). STAY TUNED keep check up on my Twitter or on my Facebook for updates

OOOO!!!!!!!! nd below is the 1st one of the series (!!!!!!!!!!bonus!!!!!!!!!!) AQUA JORDAN 8s
