Mavericks



These are a pair of custom jobs I did for my friend Marek 'Maverick' Baker.
.
I used the same trainers as my 'Midlands Mafia'. He wanted (so I did) his name down the outer sides, a koi and dragon in a tattoo stylee down the insteps, and blue laces.
.
The only drawings Id done on trainers was the Pepe Le Pew and Betty Boops which were more cartoon style but the koi and dragon turned out very good. Im tempted to try more of that style on some of my own trainers as I have done some more stuff to my 'eyeball' jacket (which I will post soon to show you) that is very tattoo influenced which I think compliments the graffiti style.
.
If you want some custom jobs but want something you dont see pictured let me know and I will see what I can do.

DOA - Dope On Arrival







Im constantly saying 'these are my favourite so far' but they are. Basic black Rockstorm (?) trainers (with no crappy brand logos apart from on the tongue underneath the 'Basquiat' style crown), changed black laces to white, and used paint markers on the suede/nubuck material.
Simple yet effective with the three letters in yellow with white adlibs. I was toying with yellow laces but I like the clean of the white ones with just a splash of colour.

Midlands Mafia massacre


You may or may not know that Im reppin the Midlands area. I thought Id prove it with this niiice pair of canvas Lonsdales. I changed the laces for some red ones as well to add more colour.
As they are canvas it was the first time I was able to use fabric markers to do the design and it worked a treat.
It worked so well that Ive been commissioned to do a similar pair that Ill up in a couple of days.

Sneak peak



Here is a sneak peak of a shoe Im working on. Couldnt wait to put it up.
I used Wildstyle the movie logo as the major influence so the colours would stand out against the blue.

Cuban's Pretty Fly jacket



Heres the jacket I promised. I added the Pretty Fly logo just so you could all see what I was talking about. Things are going slow with the label etc but things are in pipelines and irons are in fires.
