DESIGN + ILLUSTRATION
Nike Snowboarding tapped me to be their featured artist for the year in 2010, starting with an extremely limited edition (72) of hand-painted tiny dead astronaut nesting dolls. These were sent to Nike VIPs as gifts. Following this was a call to create portraits of eight key members of the Nike Snowboarding team in gear inspired by World War II uniforms. These portraits were hand painted on a large set of wooden nesting dolls which were then photographed and reproduced in Russia in a limited edition that was sent to select Nike Snowboarding retailers. Other projects over the course of the year included a shirt design for use during the X Games, a custom painted pair of Nike Snowboarding boots, and a silkscreened poster advertising the exhibition of all the artists who painted custom boots.
