It seems like I always wait until the very peak of a design trend before I make something in that vein for my mom. Be it spraypainted stencils, shirts or shoes, I always wait till I am perfectly confident with my output before I attempt to make something for my dear mother. I love these shoes and the only regret I have after designing them is not including a little Mario jumping from hill to hill amidst the clouds.

These shoes are inspired by UNT, the North Texas University that my lovely sister attends. I wanted to keep the color scheme straightforward, simple and reminiscent of the colors you would proudly see on display of her campus and closet. I think the resulting pair of KEDs achieve this artistic direction while also allowing room for my free form doodles to breath.
It is a new year and fantastic exciting things are happening all around. I feel like the best way to celebrate the rebirth of a new year is to of course, to delve in nostalgia. Check out these shoes that I painted for friends and family. This is part 1 in a series, first off: The shoes of the Isaboob

Be careful when sitting
I just wrapped up a project/competition sponsored by Herman Miller. The competition required the designer to design and decorate a plastic molded Eames chair. These would be judged and later put up for auction to sponsor local charities. The winner of the judging gets to take home a Eames lounger as a prize. Yes. That Eames Longer.
Consistent lineweights were the bane of this project
Though I think I turned in a strong entry, after viewing the other entries I feel that I may have been trumped by one entry in particular. A local artist punctured her chair with multiple wrought iron nails, lending the surface of the chair a flowing field of points and poles. It really is terrific and I will be happy to see her take home an amazing prize.
Time to be sucked into the void
